burrito213 Posted February 16, 2011 Report Share Posted February 16, 2011 i have been speaking with a technician at petronix for weeks now regarding the ignitor for the dizzy on the J series engines. this option can convert your standard dizzy to electronic ignition which makes for good and better stuff. the technician is going to see what the dizzy looks like and bench test using their testing machine to make sure what ever ignitor they use will be the right one for that specific dizzy. i asked him if he can confirm that part no. 1741 will be the correct ignitor for this application but he said he needs to test the dizzy to make sure that item will work or it might be a custom ignitor for that specific dizzy. this is what i hope to accomplish: - it offers an alternative to buying a EI dizzy from a later model truck/car and taking apart the J series dizzy, meshing them together, and making a dizzy that way. this will eliminate the headache for the mechanically challenged. - it will give anyone who is interested in making a electronic ignition for their J series engine the exact part number or information to go that route if they so choose to. - since i am talking to the technicians who test and make this product, it will confirm what will work - it will give the interested the exact "what to buy" if interested in the ignitor, coil, wires... basically make it easy for anyone interested. i am sure and well aware that there are some guru's out there that know this stuff but there are some people who are at their first time at the rodeo of restoration and would like exact information to comfort they're souls. why am i doing this?... i dont have the money for trial and error. i am learning and found out the hard way that if it isnt exactly what you need, then you wasted your money. i cant do that no more and it wouldnt be right if someone who wants this option not be given the correct parts or part number. i'm looking out for the people who have the passion for restoration and keeping datsuns alive but have to stay within a budget. i am sending my dizzy in soon and will let you know exactly what i know when i find out. ;) if this doesnt interest you then cool but if it does then stay tuned and i will let you know whats up soon. :) 1 Quote Link to comment
