Questions on the 140028... I cannot find wiring instructions... which pin is which?

Also, can I use stock wires?

Accel says no resistor types.. are resistors built into my wires? I have bakelite style connectors for a 74Tii.. Karlyn brand.

What plugs? NKG BP5ES no R?

The connections on the Accel 140028 are the same as the (Ford) EDIS coil it replaces. Just google EDIS or EDIS and Megasquirt and you'll get the info.

"I have bakelite for a TII"? --- I have no idea what you are talking about.

OK, I'm a little slow. Some of the bakelite plug connectors have resistors in them, others don't. Either should be OK.

I would not use resistive plug wires because they have a tendency to get destroyed by high-energy ignition systems.

Resistance-Plugs are OK. Resistance wires, connectors and plugs are used to reduce radio interference. They are not needed for performance.

Are resistors built into your plug wires? You'll have to disconnect them from the plug connectors and measure them. They should be close to zero ohms.

Also, if you see a stranded wire at the end of the cable, you have a non-resistive wire.

Wiring is same as for stock EDIS.

You want non resistor plugs and wires. I'd recommend the Ireland ones.

The Accel coil pack he's referring to has normal plug wire terminals. Not like the Ford coil.

You are correct, but I think austinmf was referring to the function of the terminals, not the type.

Thanks all.... I have a 140028 with the correct connector (unwired from England)

Will wire like the EDIS like the diagram with the coil connector as shown.. just not sure if it is mirror image or as seen... coil has ZERO markings...

If you look at the EDIS module carefully, you will see "PIN1" molded-in at one end of the male connector.

The connections in the illustration are shown as you see them when you look at the EDIS module male connector and the coil male connector.

I diagram correctly shows the orientation of the pins as referenced to the tabs on the connector (the connectors both only fit on one way).

what is the 25uF at the coil? ground and a resistor?

That's a cap that should be grounded to the body of the car. On the stock EDIS coil + escort bracket it is grounded to the bracket.

You can omit it, but it is helpful.

It's to let noise spikes leak to ground (just like the one on the alternator) and not to your radio or other electrical equipment like the ECU. You can then listen to nice soft elevator music that I know you guys play all the time.

i use Accel coil pack with bosch primium wires the same wire set you find on a 1990 ford escourt with NGK v-power GR52851 with megajolt LT its the single best upgrade iv ever done to my 02 anyway the Accel secordary ignition wire designation is differant then a "motorcraft" ignition coil pack the primary circuit is the same. if you purchased a new coil pack from Accel it will tell you that in the instruction something to think if your getting a crank no start condition.
