Finally an update with a little progress. It took me a while to get my weak spark situation fixed and luckily it didn't cost much either. My initial thought was the coils and old wiring harness. So I went through my harness and cleaned it up a bit. Took out some unused wires and replaced the ignition switch plug. It looked like it had shorted or melted a bit at one time, and had a lot of corrosion on it.
After I did that I still had a weak spark. So through a series of tests and deduction I found out I was getting enough juice all the way till the spark plug caps. Well I remembered reading a post by Teazer or Crazy PJ (sorry if i discredited the original author, but it was one of you guys on here that know your stuff)
They were talking about the different resistance in plug caps and how most of our old bike are supposed to have 0 resistance. So I took a look at mine and found that they were 5omh. Well a local shop had put them on a while back even though I mentioned specifically about them being 0 resistance (thank you local shop for screwing that up
Anyways I ordered some 0 resistance from MikesXS for nice and cheap and slapped them on. WAAALAAA nice fat blue/white spark.
Moral of the story CHECK YOUR PLUGS CAPS FOR PROPER RESISTANCE
Now I have a good spark I am tackling the carbs again. They sat for a few months even though I drained them all they looked kind of dirty. Have them soaking right now, so hopefully they will clean up nicely.
What is the hole and purpose of it in this picture. Just above where the gasket goes. This is obviously on the motor side of the carb. I realize I am holding the carb upside down, I was just cleaning it all up and snapped a picture.
Thanks for all your help guys. Hopefully this little sucker will be back on the road soon
