    New to me Wards Mojave 260 (Benelli 250?)

    Hi Folks - new to the forum and a novice wrench turner. (Posted this in the General thread, but probably better here)

    I just picked up a Wards Mojave 260. Early 1960s?

    I have done a couple rebuilds on Honda 4 stroke pushrods (Cub, c100, c110). This is my first experience with this sort of bike. I have copies of the owners manual and parts manual. It seems very complete and original.

    I have changed the oil, cleaned the carb and gas tank, put a new battery in. I have checked the CEV switch in the head lamp - it is clean and operational (at least as far as I can tell.)

    I don't seem to have any electrical activity (spark, head lamps, horn etc...). Any ideas on where to start looking/investigating?

    Does anyone know where I can get a wiring diagram for this?
    And... where are the points located.

    Arlington Va

    Hi George. Its not a Mojave. Its a standard Montgomery Wards 250 or 350 single. the Mojave is a completely different double cradle frame and bodywork. wiring is a little different. Engines are identical, but are 260 and 360cc.
