I haven’t found that gremlin yet, but I will.
The Chappy is a 1976 Yamaha Chappy scooter.
As far as antiques go, it’s in pretty good shape.
In fact, 2 years ago it was running when it was parked in the garage.
I probably should have taken a look at it sooner, but life happens.
Since it was running when it was parked, I figured all I’d have to do was bolt in a hot battery, fill it with gas, and fire it up.
That’s not how it went.
I got the new battery and some gas in it, but for some reason, it’s not getting power to all the places that need it.
Since I don’t have a killer set of tools anymore, I improvised.
I took the light bulb out of the turn signal and a piece of wire from an old antenna and made a test light.
Using my crude but effective tool, I found that I had power to the ignition switch, and down into the harness.
That’s where I got stumped.
I’ve got to do a little digging online to come up with more info.
If I didn’t know how to fix stuff like this, I wouldn’t even try.
I’d just take it down to the shop and let an expert handle it for me.
That’s exactly how I run my online marketing business.
Why try to figure it all out on your own if you don’t have to?
