    Well, August was absolutely brutal here. Didn’t even want to go outside, but if my skis were running...would’ve made it bearable

    Exact same year but itís a Virage 800 I think. Carbureted. 2 cylinder.

    Thanks fellas. I went back out there and watched my spark checker closely. All of a sudden I'm getting good spark on two cylinders and then I lost it on one. Did it several times and it's hit and...

    I will redo that ground I found disconnected. Could not reuse the solder less connector, and I didn't have one with a big enough hole. So I used a "U" type connector and had to stretch it out to...

    That thought crossed my mind and finally did it this morning. Geez Louise. Looks like it's the signals from the EMM. The good spark wire provides good spark to whatever coil I put it on. I...

    Ohmed out wires exactly as you said. All ohmed out at .5kohm. Did everything else you describe above and the sparks are weak and hard to see.

    Hope those used ignition coils are good, and are the...

    The wire that was disconnected is the one you describe above. The only wire to any of the ignition coil bolts. It goes into wiring harness and according to drawing, it eventually goes to one of the...

    There are no ground wires coming off the coil packs. Just a signal wire and the spark plug wire. Am I missing something?http://greenhulk.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=466878&stc=1

    Thanks for the tips. I pulled the injectors like you said to check flywheel position. Looks good to me. See attached pic to be sure. I did observe injectors pump gas while they were uninstalled...

    Sorry to have to ask, but which piston is the MAG? Also, when you say TDC, I realize that means top dead center, but does that mean the piston should be all the way up after pulling plug and...

    Hallelujah!! I got it cranking!! Let me refresh everyone's memory.
    1. I started with no fuel pressure. Long story short, I got fuel pressure, then
    2. Engine wouldn't crank. Found starter...

    Ok, I thought I had to pull the flywheel to get the starter drive off. So it's off already. I felt around for the tooth and didn't find it. I'll look/feel on the magnets while I wait for my new...

    Alrighty, this is the starter drive. Other than a missing tooth, all seems good. Ya'll think that's my issue? If you haven't already, please go further back in the thread and see my embedded video...
  14. Thanks, but not quite the same. I removed...

    Thanks, but not quite the same. I removed crankshaft position sensor so I could see flywheel move. It was moving momentarily while turning engine, then bendix just spins.
  15. No I have not. I took flywheel cover off several...

    No I have not. I took flywheel cover off several weeks ago to observe and began to pull flywheel off and engine cranked with it cover off. I didn't pull the flywheel off. Put it back together...
  16. Thanks. I just did what you said. Both flywheel...

    Thanks. I just did what you said. Both flywheel and coupler turn together for a moment and then they quit. Then I just hear the starter/bendix turn.

    Thanks, but the starter spins the motor with the plugs out.
  18. K447, so you know I had the flywheel cover off...

    K447, so you know I had the flywheel cover off several weeks ago and it cranked. I put it back together and it was back to square one. Engine cranked exactly the same before I took flywheel cover...
  19. Thanks for the tip. We may be getting somewhere....

    Thanks for the tip. We may be getting somewhere. Thanks for the tip. So I took the cover off, coupling was a little oily and awkward to get my hand around, so I just hit the start button. Same...

    Been busy doing other stuff but I got to it today. I took both (K447 & Martincom) advice.
    1. Ohmed out the cables with battery disconnected. All read 0.
    2. Disconnected main ground to engine...
  21. Got it. Makes sense. Thank you both. I’ll get to...

    Got it. Makes sense. Thank you both. I’ll get to this in about a week and update. I’m gonna add what might be a clue that may or may not help. When doing my original fuel pump stuff, a lot of oil...

    I feel so rude. K447, you responded to me right away and it's been a week for me to respond. I wanted to respond to all your questions in entirety so we wouldn't have to go back and forth and I...

    Allrighty. Gonna try to make this short. Took it all apart, and watched what happened when I tried to start. Well, it engaged, but battery got so low it wouldn't turn flywheel. That wasn't the...

    Excellent. Thanks for that. Now to psyche myself up for this project.

    So that I'm clear...I've done plenty of vehicle starters back in the day. Bendix and starter are connected and when you pull the starter, it all comes with it. So if I understand correctly, the...
