electronic ignition


Recommended Posts

Hall Effect ignition.

Not the best out there... outdated technology.

When used on a high mileage distributor (as they mostly are), the shaft wobble due to worn bearings can induce false/no signalling, esp. at higher rpms, similar to 'points bounce'. If using on a rebuilt dizzy, it's OK.

There was a time (late '70's), when this was cutting edge technology - you couldn't do better, and Pertronix and such gained a much deserved loyal following.

But, Time marches on and the optical triggers, such as the Crane XR-700, are mostly immune to the condition of the dizzy and frankly much better bang for the $. More $$, but better, more accurate operation.

I've been using one for the last 7000 miles. It works great on my Tii distributor.

I bought mine off the website: www.hotspark.com

This is not an ignition but a solid state replacement for the points.

I still have points and a condenser in my spares box in the trunk just in case but overall I am very pleased with this unit. My poor dwell meter just sits in my toolbox now......
