thanks yz, i figured the battery from 1982 that was in there, with its 3. something volts would still complete the circuit giving me something? i spent a half hour doing some cleaning up and pecking around and the mousepricks ate my wires! i hate those lil bastards. stopped at the battery shop and paid a whopping 10 bucks for a nice agm 5ah battery that looks like it will fit the bill. now to pull it apart and find the coil... is it hiding way up under the fuel tank? thats where im finding my chewed up wires. and the rot i think was caused by rat piss. oh well.
