This is might seem strange to some but I've said stranger stuff before. I have a 1994 Honda Shadow 1100 v-twin with dual carbs. If an emp were to occur, what parts would get fried?
Humm I'm not to sure. When it comes to electrical me giving you advice is like Hellen Keller leading Ray Charles across the street. If your welling to try I have seen someone show how you can test it. Bad thing is it will fry it if it fails.Scratchammo said:I see what you mean about the solenoind by mine has no CPU. I watched a video of a car getting EMP'd & the power windows still worked. Does that mean my fuel pump might still work?

Ok thanks. I'll check to see what they are.If it has a distributor cap it has points. Replace those and the coil and you are back on the road. If the wires come directly out of the engine it has pickup coils and magnets in the flywheel like a lawnmower or weedeater. Replace the pickup coils and you are back on the road.
If you want to know what points are find an old early 70's car or truck and take the distributor cap off. At the base of the distributor you'll see 2 "claw" looking pinchers with contact pads. They open and close to allow juice to flow to the spark plug. It's just a mechanical spark control module.
Or disconnect the battery. If the circuit is broken emp cannot energize itVikingdad said:I might be wrong but I think that any electronics that are not powered up and being used will not be affected. Carry a spare ignition module and you should be OK. That is as long as you know how to replace it.
