    Default This is a "Classic" so I think it fits this thread

    This is regarding a 1968 Harley D Electraglide. The rear cylinder spark plug won't fire when the ignition wire is snapped tightly onto the plug, but fires fine when the wire barely makes contact with the plug. The plug fires fine when the spark from the wire end is allowed to jump across to the plug. The spark is strong -at least in appearance. I changed plugs, I changed wires, and for the heck of it I swapped the coil with one from another bike. Nothing seems to matter.

    What are your thoughts about a possible course of action? Thanks.

    HMMMMMMMM Stumper. Sounds like you've tried everthing I would have done. Has to be a ground issue. OR Condenser?

    Oh, I forgot to mention I changed out the condenser also. But would that matter being one plug fires good and the (bad) plug fires only when the spark is allowed to jump?
