perhaps if you send me an email to my address as to the best time(your time) so that i canbe at my pc at that time bearing in mind the time zones
Ok there if there is no spark then the issue is the igniter. Also when was the last tune up done?

Customer reply replied 7 years ago
what do you call the ignitor. is it the electronic part inside dissy conneted to the coil
dont know when it had a last tune only brought it 2/1/11 i know it is out of tune or the choke not operating as it blows black fumes sometimes. i have not had the problem
again as it startes first time every day since. i dont think you can help me much as i exspected that you would send a list of things that might be wrong but this is getting
a bit long in the tooth now and not getting anywhere....i dont see what a tune up would affect the problem of no spark. although i am not a qualified mechanic i know what makes an engine tick and how it all works...built my first cat A model ford back in 1957 from boxes.. so it seems a wast of time doing this. thanks all the same
If there is a problem with the distributor rotor it will cause this no spark issue . I've been working on Honda 20 years and know what causes these failures. It's either a faulty distributor rotor , coil and igniter in the distributor or distributor base itself. This link will show you how to test these to see if these are the problems.

These are the next steps . Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
