until you get the neutral light to come on ?, it will never fire the spark plug.

Another update 3/26
Done a few things on the POS since my last post. Finally got the gasket surface cleaned up and new gaskets installed. Performed a compression test that came up at 125 psi thankfully. Used jumper cables from my truck to the starter to spin it lol (used fogging oil don't worry) and stripped the harness off of it and was surprised at how clean it actually was. (no pictures unfortunately) Put some disconnects and heat shrink on loose wires and have been having a lot of luck fortunately. I wasnt able to get the neutral light to illuminate because the bulb was burnt so after replacing that it lit right up. Starter circuit now operates as it should but still no spark. Plug is confirmed working, however no other parts of the ignition system are. The newest problem now is the ground circuit is carrying 12 volts and the headlight will not illuminate with the switch. The bulb is good and works if I hook it up straight to the battery but not the harness. As usual would appreciate some help thanks!

It sounds like you'll need to revisit your hacked up wiring harness issues and test the switches. Did you get a copy of the service manual yet? Wiring diagrams are in the back of it... they'll be useful for tracing circuits out. Switches tests are in there too.

Trying to diagnose a no spark situation...Have this what I believe to be a ground for something; not exactly sure but it has been nicknamed the virus ground because when I connect it to the circuit I can no longer push the start button to spin the engine and the relay clicks and my reverse light comes on not sure at all why this is happening. As usual would love some assistance, thanks retro Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

Is that the ground wire that the red arrow points to in the attachment?

Also, please review your previous post above and tell me what that shiny box looks like with the 4-wire plug on it:
https://www.hondaatvforums.net/forum...ml#post1275432

Is that the reverse inhibitor relay? Do the connectors match on the plug and the relay, all four terminals are present?
