EI dizzy conversion. one question


Recommended Posts

Okay so I pulled an Electronic ignition from a 1980 720 and a coil from a 280ZX since the one on the truck was gone/hard to find. Where I am stuck is there is this little condenser looking thing on my 610 that screws into the strut tower and connects to the coil. what I need to know is if it connects to the positive, negative, or if I even need it ?



Thanks for any help you can offer.

There are two condensors in a typical points system:


1) at the side of the points distributor, like racerx mentions, for storing and releasing electrical current.


2) at the coil, like datzenmike mentions, for noise suppression from the coil and associated electronics. Most modern radios can take care of the noise, but I remember when older radios could not. It was like a tach for the blind. :cool:
