I have a 1981 FXB Shovel Head and I'm not getting any spark to my plugs. I checked my coil and its good. I checked my wirers and there good. What am I missing?

Not to be a smart ass, but your plugs are good, right?

By the way, welcome to the forum. My folks live in McCormick.

Head over to "New to the Community" and post a short intro. The guys appreciate it as a respectful gesture and you'll likely get more responses on your post.

Good luck.

Not trying to be a wise guy, just a basic question. Are you grounding your plugs to the engine? No ground no spark. Welcome from Illinios

Not much useful info there but ... I'm thinking the ignition pickup inside the cam cover. If the coil is good then the ignition pickup isn't triggering the coil to discharge.
