I have a 73 R75 /5 that on and off for about 2 years I've trying to get running.
It was sitting in a garage for at least 12 years. It needs a lot of TLC and my plan was to get it running, ride it around a little and figure out everything I need to do to it and go through it over the winter but I've haven't been able to get it started.
I've cleaned and creamed the tank and rebuilt the carbs and I was getting a spark untill some point after changing the points, now nothing.
I changed the points without disconneting the battery and have read this is a good way to burn out the diode board, is there a way to test this. It's been a long time since I've worked on anything with points and I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or just missing something.
