ignition test

Post by Heinz » 04 Aug 2014, 13:51


A view weeks ago I bought a Moto Morini Corsaro 150 which I now would like to restore. Unfortunately the ignition prepared me still problems. Could you give me a few tips on how I can check this best way? I would be interested to check the three wires from the alternator in particular?

Thank you for your valuable advice in advance.

Hello Heinz,

It is difficult to give you an answer.
First: do you have an electronic diagram of the corsaro?
Second: what seems to be the problem, no spark, no current on the wires from the altenator, maybe something more specific to give us?
Third: have you seen this: http://www.powerdynamo.biz/eng/systems/ ... 76main.htm

Maybe a good investment if you are planning to restore your 150, and if you are going to use it regularly, i should not spend much time on the original and 50 years old 6 volts and points unless you have experience with the contact points system.
My Corsaro 150 has given me some problems, in particulair with battery charging.
