Thanks everyone.

I have not had much time to deal with it but I have tested/eliminated the kill switch, regulator/rectifier, tip over switch, both coils and a bunch of connections. I actually have a new ignition switch on hand but had not installed it yet. I changed to blade type fuses a few years ago but I changed them all anyway just in case. One thing I noticed is that once when I had the #1 plug out and against the head to check for a spark there was nothing until I turned the ignition switch off. That must have collapsed the coil and I had my hand where it should not have been and it jolted the C*** out of me.

I guess next I will change out the Ign. switch and chect the connectors at the TCI and behind the fuse panel.

Once you un-can a can of worms, the only way to re-can them is with a bigger can.
