I've followed classic wing sites for many years. Never tried the single carb. Mainly because every one seemed to have a problem either at idle or limited top end. And many have pilled their single carb rig off to go back to the originals. If single carbs were better, I don't think Honda's engineers would have put four on it. Carbs just require meticulous attention to detail. Get them clean and factory setup, and at the most all they will need (on the '77s only) is a wssher under each needle. Nixon, Washington (Randakk), they all say the same - get the timing and ignition spot-on, have good compression, and the carbs become less problem.

To make things a little easier when testing for spark, use a spare plug and make sure the other bank plug wire is connected. Since it is waste spark, it needs ground path (even if it is through the spark plug gap) on both ends. On side gets + and the other - voltage.

By push cable to you mean the wires off the dyna? they exit the same spot as the points, you can pull the gromet off the points cable and put on the Dyna if it doesn't have one.

Just noticed the Octane istructions use stock coils. if you got the dyna coils it's different. I'll see if I have the link to that.

I cant find anything about the dyna coils but wouldnt they still hook up the same minus the ballast resistor ? But Im bad at wiring so Idk that would just make sense to me

Yes they wire right in and you no longer use the resistor or the condenser. you need to trim your air box snorkel some to clear as the new coils are larger than the stock.
