Powerdynamo regresa el encendido
|You report: I get only spark on 1 cylinder with my Powerdynamo system using a twin coil.
|We get again and again reports from customers
that they get only spark on one cylinder with Powerdynamo systems using a twin
Without wanting to deny that a twin coil may be faulty in the way of only one exit firing, we always really hesitate to accept those reports and indeed in by now over 10 years and with something like 8000 such coils used we never had such an instance.
Those coils always fire on both exits (or not at all).
|Why are we always so sure
Have a look at the basic wiring for those coils:
|In coils with one exit:
|In our twin outlet coils:
|So what happens? Customers
are surely not making this up, they experience something.
The e.g. use a strobe and it only flashes on one HT lead.
# Report: I did put a strobe light on each HT lead (at the same time) and it was missing on the RH side.
|The best way to get convinced that it is not the coil, but the cylinder/carb arrangement is to:
|... change (swap) the leads/caps at the cylinder,
not at the coil. We bet you will now still see the same cylinder
malfunction - despite the swap of the HT feed.
Why: (This tuned out mostly only after more examination) the cylinder in question did not have compression or the carb setting was wrong.
|The really only possible coil fault (which so far has not manifested yet) leading to only one exit to fire is that internally there is a shortcircuit to ground, no other option.
