Hey, I didn't see this earlier, You can unplug the two wires from the micro and try it. If no spark use a short jumper between them and try it again.
The reason I say this is some micros are:
NC (normally closed, curcuit completed current can pass through it)
NO (normally open, curcuit broken, no current can pass)
So I don't know which yours is doing.
Someone will jump in with more knowledge. Mitch

I tested the pulser coil, it comes back as 135...137 and the micro switch works fine.

Matt,

Let me throw this out. I had a similar intermittent spark that turned out to be the plug wire connection where it goes into the coil. Someone had replaced the wire with an automotive style and assumed that the connection at the coil was a push in snap connection like the distributor cap on a car. There is a spike in the coil connection that pushes/threads into the plug wire. The snap in connection was not making good contact. Cutting off the old connector and threading the plug wire into the coil corrected my weak/intermittent spark problem.

Hope this helps.

Marty

Thanks Marty I did replace the plug and wire first just to rule that out. I'm going to go to napa to get a gm hei module to replace the ignitor unit. I tested the pulser coil..good, the ignition coil....good, the gm ignitor is under $20. so I'm just going to replace it. See it's not sparking at all now. THe manual i got says pulser coil should be between 120-180 ohm. 1986 ezgo

Matt,

Sounds like there is not much left except the pulse coil or the magnet that excites it. Any chance that the plug you are testing may be bad?
