Coil

Before I go and spend money and get something incompatible, I would just like to confirm with the hive about something:

1991 PS with factory EI.

Looking at the Flame-Thrower II sold by skidim:

Plug and play?

Thanks.

I didn't think they offered electronic ignition as OEM until 1993. Pictures?

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I thought the same thing. I pulled the distributor on my '92 and was surprised that it also had EI. I replaced the entire unit with a Pertronix Billet Plug and Play with a Flame Thrower II coil and could not be happier with it. Summit.com

Shop Amazon.com for that Flamethrower II coil. I saved some money on mine.

Call Skidim. They will give you great advice and are very knowledgeable. The advice is free but won't continue to be there if you don't spend the $1 OR $2 more for their recommended solution. A few minutes of there time and expert advice will save you tons of research time, install time and assure compatibility.

I buy my parts from them or BAWS for the reasons stated above..

Factory EI, since ETS asked:



I have done the plugs, wires and cap/rotor so I figured the coil is pretty cheap, 20+ years old, and simple to do so let's spend more money supporting my (MC)OCD.
