Powerspark Electronic Ignition explained in more detail:

The kit uses a simple magnetic trigger and optimises dwell to provide a reliable and consistent spark across the rev range. It is easy to install and maintenance free.

Each kit comprises a baseplate with electronic module, trigger ring and all wiring. The new electronic baseplate mounts exactly where the points and condenser baseplate sat. The kit connects directly to the coil using the wires provided, red to the positive side and black to the negative side. The ignition kit will automatically shut down if the ignition is left switched on without the engine running to prevent component damage.

Powerspark Electronic Ignition Kits are designed to work with a coil resistance above 1.5 ohms, typically 3.0 ohms. Some performance coils operate at a lower resistance and will need the High Energy electronic ignition kit.

Pre Installation Checks

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.
Please be aware that this kit might come pre assembled and will require you to remove the ignition module from the base plate so you can attach the base plate to the distributor with the counter sunk screw supplied.

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

Installing the Ignition Kit

  1. Remove the points and condenser from the distributor.
  2. Check earth wire to ensure it is in good condition and not frayed, broken or missing (replace if needed).
  3. Place trigger ring over the central shaft ensuring a tight fitment do not force the trigger on.
  4. Install the ignition kit using your old screw fixing point
  5. Run the wire around the back of the kit making sure they won’t snag when the distributor advances.
  6. Connect the Ignition kit to the ignition coil ensuring the
    Powerspark red wire goes to Positive (+ VE, SW, or 15) on ignition coil.
    Powerspark Blackwire goes to Negative (- VE, CB, or 1) on ignition coil.
  7. Make sure your live ignition feed to the coil is on the positive terminal only.
  8. Please ensure you have this set of Points (below on the right)
