Depending where you are in the world, indicator bulbs vary between 18w and 23w. Headlight bulb will work as well but if you have a dead short it gets a bit bright and a bit hot. Headlights are usually 35~65w plus, it has a higher amp draw so battery voltage will drop faster (over 5amps for 65w, 12v bulb)

Still 0 Ohms with the multimeter set to 200, damn! Hopefully I'll be able to get my money back through ebay/paypal.

I did check the secondary resistance too (green wire to plug cap) and I have a correct 14.6 ohms

Looks like you have CDI ignition coils. You'll definitely want to get those replaced.

Hum, the seller I bought the coils from advertised them as perfectly compatible with the 1976 CB360... as a direct swap from the OEM ones, I will need to get my money back...

Theses should fit without problems right ? Plus I already bough from 4into1 and I know they are reliable, although I need to pay 30% of custom taxes to france.

That is good to know thanks, there is no chance of frying the bulb of the indicator doing so?

Only if you drop it  ;D High load or dead short will just make it light up as normal, it should dim if everything is OK as whatever load you have on circuit will 'share' the voltage

Haha okay, nice trick anyway :)

I just sent back my faulty coils, waiting to receive my new set of 5 ohms coils from 4into1 to test everything again.
