Just picked up a 76 KZ750 B Twin.

it had sat since 95.

When I received it, it was a rolling frame and a box of parts. 
Got it to run for about a week.  It had... issues... but was running. 
Now getting no spark. so will be replacing coils (again) and see if that gets it to fire up again.

Hello distant neighbor. I’m in Michigan. 

first I’d find a factory manual and get the coil resistance. It’s really simple to test them. Then you know if they are good or bad. Just swapping parts hoping to get lucky and find the bad one gets expensive

Yes,  I have that one downloaded,  and just looked over the testing.  (I thought I was using my meter wrong to begin with)  Will be checking it tonight.

And reading through the forums is helping a lot as well.

Welcome to the Forum. Look to DoctoRot's Saving a 1980 750 twin for some inspiration. 
What are your plans and more importantly, where are the pics?
