72 Honda ct70 trailbike help

Working on 1972 honda trail ct70 bike for a guy...I can get no spark,feels like no compression, valves are opening as should. Well I guess what I need is a manual for it..I checked this site couldnt find one. I dont know how to get to the coil or nothing..new territory for me. Thanks

and the reason you could not find any manual's on here for it ?..is because it's considered a motor cycle...lol.

Ignition Timing Adjustment
CT70 And Mini Trail 50


1. Remove the left crankcase cover.
2. Rotate the flywheel counterclockwise to find the point where the breaker point gap is at maximum and check if the gap is correct using a thickness gauge.
3. The standard gap. is 0.012-0.016 in. (0.3-0.4 mm).
4. When adjustment is necessary, loosen the breaker locking screw and move the breaker base in either clockwise or counterclockwise direction to obtain the standard point gap setting.
5. After completting the breaker point gap adjustment, recheck the ignition timing. To perform the check, rotate the flywheel so that when the flywheel "F" timing mark is aligned to the timing index mark on the left crank case, the breaker points just begin to open.

At least you can pull head and cyl on bike. Easy to work on from what I remember back in the mid 70's.

dont buy a chinese head, they wont last. buy the OEM from ebay. there are MANY parts on there. even if your getting spark. i suggest filing the points and cleaning them up. more than likely they need to be cleaned, i wouldnt be surprised if it gave you a stronger spark.
