I know wiring is easy for some but, unfortunately, not for me. confused

Soooo,if I have this right per instructions from Boyer......


Dear Sir, The ballast resistor (25 watt minimum) should be connected in series with the positive coil connection, for a positive earth machine, between the frame (+ve earth) and the coil positive connection.


The sequence should be:

Red wire from Boyer......frame......resistor wire......resistor......positive coil connector.

This sort of makes sense to me but I'm still waiting for the light to shine. :g:

Sorry, Boyer instructions should read:

The ignition units red wire should go directly to the frame +ve, not via the resistor.

I don't see the problem here.
The resistor simply goes in series with the coil.
I can't post a diagram, but if you look at the diagram in the Boyer instructions that shows two coils in series, you will simply substitute the ballast resistor for one of the coils.

This is exactly what they are saying in your second post.


Stop the insanity.
