Hi, i got this one on e-bay for very cheap. new in box, never opened imho. but the assembly manual is missing. i have the schematic, but i am wondering if this was assembled "high wire", or if there was a PCB in there ever ??

the transfo is also missing, doh...

Pat - I have run across some technical correspondence letters in older Roundels, but no I/O manual. Wonder if Mike Self has one he could share.

yeah, i know there should be a pcb and sort of black encapsuled transfo.

Mike ? what have you done with yours that was toasted ?

If anyone has one of theses units collecting dust somewhere i could use it to copy the pcb and check transfo specs.

thanks.

a "PCB"?

I have an Archerkit Delta unit (assembled) and may have a schematic. Drop me an e-mail to remind me and I'll look. I have several of these that have a dead component inside somewhere but I don't know electronics enough to troubleshoot the problem.

BTW, the company that made the Delta (and Archer Kit) units is still in business either in Parachute or Grand Junction, Colorado.

Here's a link to a schematic for a Deltakit, which is presumably the same as the Archerkit since they were made by the same company. It's a Mark 10--the only difference between it and a Mark 10B is the B model has a swich that allows you to go back to conventional ignition without disconnecting anything.

Hope this helps.

Hi--

A Delta Mark-10 ignition was about the first addition to my'73 when it was a month or two old; it performed flawlessly for many decades and I still have it. I added a Western Controls distributor cam sensor after about 5 years; no more pinnts to gap or lubricate!

If Mike does not have the assembly/ instalation manual I probably do. Also, the Mark 10-C added multiple/variable spark timing and appeared in a different case.

Well, I found the manual; now to scan in the 26 pages (less positive ground instructions!) and see if they are small enough to post.

Hi--

Before I scan in all the Delta Mark 10 manual, here are the instructions for the Western Controls trigger sensor that has also worked flawlessly. Note that JPG files are all I have that are small enough to post. When i get the Delta manual ready page-by-page I'll have to see how many postings I need to get it all up, but I'll work at it.

Well, I guess I need one more to get the first page up!

OK, here is the first page of the Western Controls literature.

OK, here it is, in as many postings I need for all 23 pages (but not the + ground instructions; this is why the page numbers have a break). Let me know if, after appropriate zooming, something is unreadable.
