verify there is voltage at the primary coil..as always get a NEW battery, get new cables or assure solid connections that can supply the needed 40 amps to the system...the engine block and the fender/chassis...make sure the juice can get through to the coil~ and power is assured...use a phillips screwdriver instead of the sparkplug to see if you got a spark in the first place~ can follow up with more PM and wait for me to research drawings to work from~

Thanks. Will check the coil next week (motor home is on a remote island) when a friend can accompany me. It has a new battery on a trickle charger & battery cables are good. Turns over but no spark.

power to the coil (primary) might be wire has fallen off or been chewed by creatures~

Very likely wire got chewed by mice who were living in the air filter! Will let you know if that works ASAP. Saturna

keep testing the power to the coil..where it quits is the trouble zone~
