Hi this is Kenny, you need to get a relay in this, the way the new igniter is activated it requires voltage when the start motor is engaged.
Do you have a bad starter relay ?
The new igniter needs to see voltage when you are engaging the starter motor from the ignition switch, it will not see voltage when jumping across the solenoid.
Yes, no problem, we'll keep it open, I will not click the "rate" button until you get back to me and then once we get spark, in the mean time why did you replace the pick-up coil ?
Just start out your question with my name and state that you are requesting my assistance
