Well heres my story. My mom gave me a sled that was crashed into a creek bank a couple of years ago. Never summarized I brought it home and with a little work she fired up, but ran really bad, and while I drove it around the house I noticed the bearing on the jackshaft was noisy. I drove the sled into the garage and changed the bearing and cleaned the carbs and now it won't start. It has a really weak spark, even with a new plug. Could the stator have been the problem before. Any advice and help on how to test the stator would be great. Thanks in advance!

Take a look inside your spark plug boots for carbon tracks and signs of burning. The caps unscrew off the coil wires and probably need to be replaced.

Thanks for the fast reply thumbdoctor!

I looked inside the spark plug boots and didn't see any signs of burning. I noticed that even the headlight is really dim when pull starting. If I turn the lights off in the garage I can see a very dim spark and barely see the headlight. Is there a test for the stator? I pulled the magneto off and its clean, no rust. Am I missing a ground wire? I forgot to mention that it is a 1991. Thanks again!
