Low tension

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the Brocken wire is on the low tension for the points in the middle of the photo

Your photo is to small to see much but it has to be either the wire from the points to the condenser or the wire from the coil to the points.

Hi bully. Sorry about the poor picture try this one the wire from the bottom of the coil is fitted to the points. The broken wire is from the top of the coil if that makes sense.

That clear coated wire looks like it could be the wire which is supposed to be black and is supposed to go up to the ignition coil under the tank. Use a multi meter on Ohms to tell you if that wire is connected on the points end. An older manual has

 a good wiring diagram in them. Clymer or Haynes. Graham.

Having a second look that may be the coil wire which is supposed to go to the points. There should be 3 wires going to the points if the condenser is in the ignition. 1  from the coil for power, 1 from the points to the condenser and 1 from the points up to the top coil. It looks like your ignition has had the lighting coil removed so there should also be a ground or earth wire going up top as well. Usually green.
