So i have a 1998 Softail springer with a fairly stock 80 ci late model evo. After running hard (80mph) for about 500 miles the other day. Got where i was going, stopped and started fine still... It sat overnight in the rain, then i tried to start it the next morning (still wet) and it wouldn't fire. I knew after running hard it had puked some oil back into the carb... about 1/2 quart in the trip. So i took the carb apart and it was due a cleaning anyway, got it all back together and it still wouldn't fire. And after testing it a little i've came to the conclusion that its not firing. By testing a little i mean i grounded the plug on the cylinder head and held it slightly away looking for a spark. There was nothing. The things i've read and were told to look for were the cam shaft sensor plug and or cam shaft sensor, the plug (i assume thats under the tank) with 8 wires and contains the white wire with the black stripe that eventually leads to the coil. I don't have a multimeter with me, just basic tools as i am quite far from home atm. I'm wondering which pole on the coil is hot and if i can hook it straight up to the battery and see if that fixes it. Otherwise id assume its the little deal that has replaced the points inside the nose cone. Any help would be appreciated. Looking for someone to point me in the right direction. I did look in the nose cone and noticed the plastic piece looks like its been hot and melted. After looking at other parts (on ebay) they all looked like that as well. Is that normal?
