Do Pazon Smart-fire,Tri-spark or Boyer require a resistor cap or plug? These are the only ones that would concern me and maybe a few others....Mark
Oh, and maybe the Lucas Rita since I inherited a couple of those...thanks, Mark
ignitions usually need either resistor caps or plugs but analogue
ignitions do not although EI manufacturers often recommend
they are used. http://www.boyerbransden.com/faq.html
FAQ:"Why Do I Need To Use Suppressed Plug Caps?
MKIII and MKIV do not require suppressed plug caps for operation although we recommend using supressed 5000 ohm plug caps. Micro Digital and Micro Power units must be fitted with supressed plug caps. Plug caps fitted with suppression resistors are usually fitted to prevent radio interference. Radio interference (noise) can cause more complex electronic circuits like radios and computers to malfunction.
Our Micro Digital and Micro Power ignition systems contain a small computer operating at high speed that can be adversely affected by radio frequency interference. Symptoms can range from refusal to start to intermittent engine stalling symptoms. Use of non-suppressed plug caps has been known to cause permanent damage to the ignition unit."
