The Powerspark electronic ignition to replace Bosch single pcs right handed six cylinder points in Bosch JFU6 distributors as fitted to BMW, Ford, Mercedes & Porsche including some industrial and marine applications.

We recommend using silicon HT leads with electronic ignition ONLY
Using copper HT leads without resistors can cause premature failures to any electronic ignition and this can void your warranty.

Pre Installation Checks

Please ensure you have a negative earth car if you have the negative earth kit and vice versa.

  • If your car has a Ballast ignition you are running a Ballast ignition coil such as a Lucas DLB110
  • Ensure there is a good earth to the distributor, ignition kit and ignition coil.
  • The Powerspark kit will operate on 6 volt or 12 volt Applications.
  • Make sure any Live wires are to the correct side of the coil e.g. auto choke
  • The K10-18.5 is the same as the K10 kit but with a bigger trigger ring to suit Bosch 6 cylinder distributors with the large 18.5mm (flat to flat) points cam
