Why would an automotive plug wire not work on an ATV coil?
The ATC 110 I have been working on had an Accel 8MM plug wire on it. Some one at some point in time cut the ends off and used it on this trike. It “appears” as though it was done correctly. However, I did nto get any spark. I thought the coil was bad. I just recently got another 110 that did have spark. I took just the plug wire off of that one and replaced the 8MM wire. Now, I have spark. Other than the wire being damaged, are there any other reasons a standard automotive plug wire would not work? A few people told me that plug wire would not do the job. Why?
