Customer Question

I have a 1989 ezgo gxt 800 with a no start issue. Replaced the coil, regulator, igniter and carb. Turns over fine will not start. New spark plugs shows fire but weak. How do I test the pulsar coil? I put a meter on the two wires coming from it and get a resistance of 150 ohms but have no idea if this is good or bad. Any ideas?

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! If you checked the compression? Will it fire for a few seconds if you put fuel direct into the cylinder> Do you have the engine model number? Some of these have engine with a timing belt, which may have slipped timing!
