Well now that I have work on my 1978 superguide shovel I thought that it had points & con. I have found out that it is a 1978 1/2 and it has electronic ignition and I beleive that it is bad because I am still not getting any fire . So I have got new plugs new coil new electronic ignition from HD $ 300 . My question is now how to you tell the pos. & neg. side of the new coil beacuse it does not tell and how do i adjust the electronic ignition . any tips would be very much appreciated thanks Bronson ,free1920

You could have converted to points for $20...
The new coil should wire the same as the old one. The terminal with 2 wires is the +, should be top one as mounted.
Adjusting the electronic ignition is basically the same as adjusting points. Center the wide lobe in the sensor & set at .004-.006. Set timing with strobe light in usual manner.
Hopes this helps.
