NC fairlane no spark

Have a 5 litre nc fairlane, the starting has been playing up recently, having to tap under dash to get starter motor to go, friday was cranking would not fire, does the module under the dash also control the spark as it seemed there was nothing at the leads, or am i looking at faulty coil ??

Loose connections on back of key lock more likely and common.

the smart lock unit under the dash turns the engine computor off so yes it could be the issue

Re: NC fairlane no spark

job done, and she runs again...best advice for getting the bolt back to hold the dizzy in place is a piece of fishing line and patience
