Hi Guys, A few weeks ago, I had an electrical issue with my machine. The wiring at the switch was all melted, along with the points themselves being a charred mess. One at a time, I rewired any suspicious wires and installed new points and condensor. Ignition goes to + on the coil, with points and condensor on the - side. After all this I still had a no-spark situation. I started to look at the ignition switch and ended up breaking it in the process. I replaced it with a 92-6785 and wired it to some instructions I found on this site. This is a points tractor and I used the M prong on the switch for this connection. My coil was loose at the top and leaking so I replaced it with a new one. So here's my problem: I'm still at a no spark and found that even when the breaker points are open, I have continuity between the two sides. Unplugging the lead to the coil resolves the continuity, but of course now I don't have voltage. This situation occurs with and without the positive terminal on the battery connected. I now turn to the professionals and ask for guidance. Thanks in advance for any help! John
