If you are SURE it's the coil, I have a used one you can have for $30.00. It came out of a '99 workhorse that I upgraded to an MCI motor. The new motor came with a new coil, so this is not needed.
Be sure it's the coil. Wait for some more feedback to assure that's the prob. I don't want to sell you the wrong component. Be patient, the pros will be soon to help!

You may have to search "EZGO Gas tech" section of the forum. There are manuals in there that should have the test procedure for the coil. I also have the ignitor, if thats it. I need $70.00 for that. New ignitors are at/ over $200.!
I'll help you look.

I'm sorry, I might have got ahead of you. Theres stuff in the trouble shooting section, BUT I CAN"T FIND IT EITHER! The ignitor is the "Black box" located in under the cover, next to the solenoid. dont worry about that,yet.
Take out 1 sparkplug. put wire back on the plug. (in ineutral) place on the head to ground. push accelerator and observe spark, and describe what happens. please.
Check connections from coil/ plug wires/plug caps
physically remove any/all connections at the coil and clean them.
(use emery cloth, small wire brush.......) replace to original locations.
See if it'll spark/start, if not we'll start checking coils.
Who KNOWS HOW TO CHECK THE COIL?? wheres the info at?? Help!

absolutly nothing happens when I take one spark plug out and touch it to the head I took all connections off tto the coil cleaned them and in the procces I discoved a small chip out of the coil but I don't think that could do anything by not giving it no spark?
could I take a coil out of something else that is twin cylinder and try that in it?

We'll have to ask someone else for sure. you probably could for a short test and not cause any problem. thats a guess, sorry

I found the tests. If you have an ohmeter, you're in bussiness. Go to ez go gas tech on the home page. There's a thread for manuals. It's the first one, Technicians repair and service manual. I don't know how to open it here, so ya gotta look it up yourself now. It's pretty simple. tony
