#2 is also moot.Electricity I often say is lazy stuff. It's not going to work harder than it has to do get the job done. If you've got a gap for it to cross, it will use the required amount of power to do the work. If you got more power, goodonya -- frame it and put it on the wall. The spark won't care. It got what it needed.
Instead of the points creating the energy to fire the coil - this thing does and the breakers only function like a switch
Then what's the difference between a strong blue spark and weak one?More, is more. Stronger, equals a powerful spark. Less, is just less. And we've all seen that.
Wayne, you seem to know your way around a electrical schematic - do you suggest one would achieve much better results by altering this kit a bit?
NO.Just look at the schematic and the TIP162 specs.
I installed a Vellman unit on my Loop & very pleased with it. After about 10,000 km, it's on the original points with very little wear on the fiber heal and just a little evidence of pitting on the points surfaces, not enough to warrant replacing.Starts easily hot or cold and after some experimenting with different advance springs, no evidence of detonation even when pulling a steep hill in hot temps w/o revving it unduly.
no, your right - what I meant is that they take the current off the points and also makes it so the points gap doesn't matter
It will alter the timing if you don't reset the timing after doing whatever you plan to do with the gap.In practice, as long as the points open on time, with a 2-cyl, especially a dual coil 2-cyl, dwell isn't really an issue. The coil has way more time to saturate than it needs. Remember -- a bosch blue coil is also used on some V8's. If it can fire 8 in a full cycle with a standard gap, it can fire one with a super wide gap. The only think I can see suffering for it is the spark plug.
Geodoc, what is the carb/manifold setup on that v700?
