GT Died
« on: December 21, 2017, 03:45:21 pm »
With temperatures in the 70's, I opened the garage door and fired up my GT for the first time in a couple of months.   ( Had foot surgery and Dr says I still shouldn't ride  ).    After several minutes of idling nicely it unexpectedly died and wouldn't restart.   All indications, or lack of, seemed normal.   Got the plug wrench to check for spark.  Reached down and found the high tension lead had come out of the NGK  plug cap.  "Screwed" it back in and all is well again.  Time to replace the HT lead.  Question is :  does the ht lead unscrew from the coil, or does the coil have to be replaced?   Thanks

I replaced both to a Dyna Tek coil. Also, the wire and cap to ones with no resistance with that coil.
Coil - DC10-1
Wire - 2104-0266

These part numbers are from the supplier, Parts Unlimited.

Just replaced the NGK 90 spark plug boot with a  NGK 8032 angled plug boot ( $2.99 at o'reillys - cheaper then a coil ) which releived the strain on the plug wire.
