Default Onan 6.5NHE-1r/26100A wont fire up

6.5NHE-1R/26100A
C860831180

emrald 3

im a bit confused as to what to look at atm also a wireing diagram and such might help me

dead stick when start button is pressed no 12+ to coil /fuel system etc
when jumpered to 12+ it will run but genset does nothing

it seems maybe the boards not functioning it came with a 30A fuse installed in it but shows no signs of buring visable on inspection

is this unit able to be ran without a board?

Yes, your points could be bad. You may also have something grounding them out. The service manual, a test light, & a VOM will save a lot of guess work, throwing parts at these things can get expensive & produce poor results.
