Instead of the points creating the energy to fire the coil - this thing does and the breakers only function like a switch
I'm not sure what you mean. Points don't create energy. They act as a switch.
1) According to the instructions they use 4A each (so 8A in total), which appears to be quite a bit when the alternator only produces 20A and if you're run lights, indicators etc, it doesn't leave a lot to spare.2) Having read threads by people who've installed them in cars, there are reports that some heat sinks get very hot.Be interested in your thoughts if you install and use them.
Wayne, do you mean the velleman kit? I thought I could rebuild it to accommodate two points and coils by doubling up on some wiring while letting the transistor work for both. what do you think about that?
They aren't going to use an EXTRA 4 amps. They are just talking about the 4 amps that the coil needs, which it also needs with the points.Do you have a schematic?I found the schematic. The electronics will use about 1/3 amp. The antique design uses a darlington transistor. There is going to be a good bit of heat at that transistor, and a bit less energy at the coil. But then the dwell time is so long on a Guzzi motor, it won't mean a thing.
Thanks, that's answered one of my questions.I don't think I'll ever fit them; they're going to take up a fair bit of room and I don't ride the Guzzi enough for points wear to be much of a problem.Heat from two heatsinks may also be a problem.
I thought that instead of having two systems working side by side - I would modify one to work with two points and two coils - I have a two coil two stroke bike wo distributor I am working on - would that be advisable?
And they aren't waterproof. All told, it looks like a recipe for additional failure.
3) Longer plug life. With the booster the plug is passing much less amperage, so less erosion.
That one doesn't make much sense. Lower current to the spark plug = weaker spark, by definition. The points are carrying much less current and last lnger, but you hope the plugs get the same or more current.
