low current to coil

for some reason it seems the low voltage wires to the coil are only

generating 3-4 volts. the battery has a ok charge (around 11.5v) and

it's turning over ok. haven't found any loose wires or breaks.

needless to say the plugs aren't sparking (they are getting a mild

current though - ouch!)

anyone have a magic bullet?

+11.5v at the battery is _not_ ok. A fully charged battery,

regardless of kind, should be >+12.6V. At +11.5V (if that is the

accurate voltage reading) is almost fully discharged. That, coupled

with inherent resistance in the circuit, could explain your

problem.

How and under what exact conditions are you measuring the

voltage at the battery?

When measuring volts at the coil always disconnect the + wire to the coil and measure for accurate voltage.
