Would anybody have any clever ideas on where to mount a Boyer Power box on 69 A65? Right now I have it sloppely zip tied,, I guess important for it to have air flow. Thank You!

Inside the tool box is as good a place as any, drill a couple of holes and zip tie it against the metal.

Not sure if the size is comparable, but I placed my pazon in between my ignition coils using a stick on anchor and two zip ties. Holds tight, plenty of air.

ETA: looks like the Boyer is larger. I have the podtronics rectifier. I placed it on the top of the oil tank under the seat.

I mounted my podtronics reg inside the tool tray, however 10 years on and a split has emerged.... following trying to weld it and it blowing in holes, im guessing its because the tray is rotten and not because of the podtronics so much.

I have sat Boyer ignition units atop the oil tank. With the wires around the froth tower, it stays in place on a rubber pad, and kept in place sandwiched between the frame rails by insulating material, whatever comes to hand. I have a voltage regulator mounted on the back of the battery side sidepanel mount.

I've mounted several Boyers under the frame tube behind the seat. Wrap it with some zip ties and it's easy to route the wires to the coils.
