Za50 had spark but lost it quickly...

Trying to get an old maxi running. Wired to just check spark. Got a spark, it was pretty weak, and then lost it shortly after. Based on having it and losing it quickly after, what happened? Condenser go out? Coil die? Thoughts?

Yes what Roffman said.

You will need one of these to do the job (see pic below).

It is called a flywheel puller. I have the one original Puch tool available for sale.

It theads into flywheel and center bolt pushes flywheel off of crankshaft without damage. Simply bolt flywheel back on and torque when finished.

You will also need a flywheel holder. Many of those are universal and can work on any flywheel.

Yes the stock puch ^ Flywheel remover tool is way better than some aftermarket ones because it doesn’t destroy the end of the crank like some aftermarket ones can,

Re: Za50 had spark but lost it quickly...

All of mine have little pointy tips, ive never ruined any crank using a puller properly. Our harbor freight bearing puller has however taken some casualties from user error.
