    O1 virage twin no spark

    I was out on a test run after PTO crank sel replacement and was retuning the carb. On the send run out as i was leaving the 5 knot zone the engine felt like it dropped a cylinder, then cleared. It did same a bit further out and died. It would crank but not run, tried the bilge button and start button but no good.
    I have removed LR module removed the yellow/black wires earthed the black/white wire.....crank but no start.
    I have at least 10.6 crankimg volts
    Coil resistance is .75 ohms on the primary side. 8000 ohms between the two spark plug ends.
    Using 9 volt battery test the hall effect both trigger can't remember the numbers. The only number that is not right is the black to purple resistance whoch is 9 ohms instead of 5.5. Is that enough to prevent spark or is it the CDI as i suspect.

    I have had that happen twice first time it was the battery put a gel battery in started right up. The second time it was the spark plug wires that were bad. I would think it might be the battery even if the numbers are looking good.

    Turns out it was was water in the plug that joins the stator to the ebox causing a short. Not sure how it got there. But runs great now. Replacement CDI for sale....
