    1967 Wards Benelli 250 (no spark)

    I'm not a mechanic by any stretch but I bought the bike with the intention of doing basic work myself.

    I have the wiring dialed in but cannot figure out why I'm not getting a spark out of the spark plug.

    I don't now exactly what to measure (multimeter), but I do have the tank off and can access the regulator and coil. I snapped a few pictures to help.

    Replacement parts aren't that expensive but I'm not positive what part is the correct one, any help is appreciated.

    The box with the yellow label is the voltage regulator, the first picture is the ht coil for the spark plug. The other 2 EBay pictures are both suitable replacements for the ht coil. In my experience with a bike as old as yours it is best to replace the following items
    1) Ht coil
    2) Condenser
    3) points
    once these are fitted and the points gap set you should have a spark unless there is a wiring issue. The ignition switch may need testing to see if voltage goes through it.
    hope this helps

    The ignition coil in your photo appears to be disconnected. Is that how it was when trying to start the engine?

    Thank you for the help. I've ordered the parts and hopefully I'll get to work on it soon.

    As far as it being disconnected, yes, it was connected at the time I was trying to start it.

    I tested the ignition switch and the lights are functioning property. It's all about getting the spark at this point. Well, unless there is a surprise in the clutch. I'll be checking that next.
