vespa grande points

1978 grande, can someone tell me where the points are, can't seem to find them, the manual shows them buy the clutch, thanks.

Re: vespa grande points

Yep. They are under the flywheel / fan unit.

Re: vespa grande points

under the rubber kidney shaped plug

Re: vespa grande points

ok, found and cleaned the points, I get some spark but weak, could it be a bad coil or condenser. It started in the morning and 4 hours later no go. help please.

Re: vespa grande points

try a new gapped spark plug, also try grounding your blue wire.

Re: vespa grande points

A bad coil isn't very likely. Could certainly be a bad condenser.

Re: vespa grande points

Hello Zack,

I need to replace the points and condenser on my Grande as well. Just curious at this point how hard it would be to actually replace the points rather than cleaning? Any further guidance on how to remove the flywheel is helpful - thank you.

Correct flywheel puller does that job and the points are held in place by a single screw .

Point file , brake cleaner and a fresh dollar bill do a nice job on the old points .
