Post Re: 1-2-spark
Thank you Ken. So today I made two brackets and welded them to the inlet manifold. Then I did a quick testdrive an my surprise my butt says there is more power. Going up hill I think there are 2 or 3 more hp now. Hmmm I always thought a spark is a spark... NOT.
Here is a little video of the day..

The coils are for a Renault or Dacia, but in general they need to have 2 pins, so 12 volt.

And no I did nothing to the 1-2-spark unit other then spliting the wites to run both coils.. I put the dwell down a little..

What resistance are your coils?

Mine have 2 pins and are 0.5 ohm!

The Rimmer Bros have some "special price" for Rover coils..:

There is a normal price, £96 but they have now £60 (included UK VAT) for six pieces, on their brochure what arrived by mail yesterday. Some Mega Clearance on their stock I think...
