Default honda ex 800 no spark

i saved this little generator from a pegon shed... smelled something horrable.. after washing the poop off i checked for spark.. nope.. pulled it all apart.. tried disconecting the generator connections to the coil wires still no spark.. pulled the flywheel off it has a exciter and another pickup of some kind behind the flywheel..

i did find the parts, under 30 for both of those... coil is 78..

anyone have any experience with these 800s? i have an exact engine off a edger but the ignition is totally different (guess its not exact).. only has a normal coil..

there isent a way to revive these ignitors is there?

This is the circuit of a Honda EX800 & a circuit for the CDI. You will need to find a suitable Ign coil as this model has the coil built in to the CDI unit. A (EM500 has CDI but uses a seperate IGN coil).

To resolve a 'no spark' issue, here are the steps from the shop manual:

• Check for fouled, damaged, worn, or improperly gapped spark plug
• Inspect and check operation of engine switch
• Verify high-tension (spark plug) wire isn't open or shorted
• Confirm complete connection from ignition coil to spark plug cap
• Inspect / measure ignition coil
• Inspect pulser coil
• Test C.D.I. unit
