  • Bad Stator Fix--Don't buy a new stator for your engine!  Create a battery-op ignition system for less than $50

    Thank you for this information. I am considering doing this to a vintage moped with a very expensive bad stator coil. I have a couple suggestions, I think people are getting confused with your description of attaching the wire to the points. The points are already there, and theres already a wire coming from it, so I would just use that same wire (assuming its in good condition).

    the proper parts for me are like $250 and I have spare 12v batteries
