Resistor Workaround w/ electronic Ign.

With the completion of the points replacement with electronic, what is / are the step(s) that is associated with the resistor, (if there is a requirement as such) please?

Sporty, step away from the carpet glue!

What I had intentions of asking was bypassing the resistor in the ignition system. Ballast??? I replaced one this afternoon in the garage... LOL

And on the note of the weights, I was talking to Vince at Ski DIM on Monday. He told me that they could no longer find these weights (from cannibalizing other distributors) nor were they available to DIM otherwise. Once they go, he suggested replacing the entire distributor.

I've just bypased it and left it where it sits. I keep the old point with me on the boat just in case the new electronics fail (some have had the electronics burn out if the ignition is left on).

All well and good but what step(s) does a Piping engineer take to "bypass?"

Thanks

The ballast will have 2 connections on it oppisite each other. You simply unscrew one side and connect the wire to other side, bypassing the resister/ignition ballast. You will have one terminal/connection unused. In other words, just connect all the wires together on one side of the ballast and you will have bypassed the resistor. Make sense?

Now that's what I'm talking about... Thank you my fine-feathered friend.
