Re: Ignition wires colour etc.

Hi Richard, The HT lead you show in the link is a copper core lead. That type of lead should be used in combination with resistor caps you mention to have some EMI and RFI suppression. Works OK'ish in my opinion. I would instead go for the 'ferroflex' lead they sell at the green spark plug, that is ...

Re: Ignition wires colour etc.

I would not be to concerned about the resistance of the cap and plug. A good ignition system will have no problems with that what so ever. It has hardly any impact on spark output but it's there to reduce the 'noise level' of Radio Frequency Interference and it suppresses ElectroMagnetic Interferenc...

Re: Petronix replacement for points

An original Dinoplex is in my opinion as good as any other newer replacement system. The problem lies most of all in the distributor. There is an engine builder just around the block from my place and they happened to rebuild around 15 Dino Engines over the last 2 years or so. Because i have a distr...

Re: Petronix replacement for points

Maybe i can ad an opinion as well, I think the preferable option is to keep everything original and make sure your distributor is in 100% top condition. I have never had any issues with points in my life, i did have problems with parts that caused points to wear, bad cam-profile surface, no grease o...

Re: Carb Manifold Pipes

Normally they are open and with a hose attached to the air filter. The reason for these tubes are the following: Blow by gasses enter the airfilter thru the oil filler vent pipes. Without these tubes the blow by gasses would go thru the carburettor into the engine. It would actually go thru the idle...

Re: Fiat Dino Tacho Problem

Looks like you have some sort of transistor ignition system build into your car. It is at least a bit messy and slightly confusing with all these different colors of wiring attached to it. But maybe you can check what is inside your distributor because if there are 3 wires going to your distributor ...
