This is what I do to test the ign coil, using a capacitor & 6V. As you toggle the switch (or just flick the wires together) you should get a spark.

The capacitor can be any .15uf 250V Polyester type, or a common points ignition capacitor.

Latest update:

Tested the ignition coil as shown by debe and there's no spark. I have ordered a replacement and also an ignition module too just for good measure. Will let you know once they arrive & fitted. Appreciate all the help
