    hey all, been working on this bike for a long time now in my non existent spare time. im running a 79 with hughs's pma, pamco ignition, add on e advance, the high output coil from pamco, mikuni 32mm carbs from tc bros and a stock 12v motorcycle battery. would love to have my capacitor do the trick eventually but till it runs......... and she is kick only. just making sure that all of these coexist together. im getting spark. either my timing is so far off it won't fire up or some of these parts wont work together. please help, any info helps. much appreciated in advance.

    With a buddy kicking you can check your timing with a timing light. having the plugs out (and grounded) really helps.

    Do as Pete suggests and use a stand alone battery to power your ignition. Then see what you have,
