Hello. My name is Tan.

The rectifier wires match up to the yellow wires coming from the stator. Yellow to yellow. The yellow/blue goes to the yellow/gray and the yellow to yellow. The rectifier is grounded through the case no ground wire. The red goes to the same terminal as the battery cable connection on the solenoid.

As for the no spark issue we have to test the brown wires coming out of the stator and the timer base wires.

Do you have a peak reading volt meter or a DVA adapter for you meter to do some voltage tests?

If no meter peak or DVA do you have an ohm meter?
