  • Stop Burning Ignition Points

    I've seen lots of miracle gadgets, but this is a new one for me. It goes in series with the primary of the coil.

    I dunno. I have never had a problem turning off the ignition.

      Interesting. Seems like probably just a resistor. The write-up cracked me up, especially the part about dipping the stripped wire is solder.

        The points in my '55 F250 would oxidize all too frequently. The condenser was the correct one. Miles' electrical teacher from resto college had told the class to use a diode in series with the feed wire to the dizzy. I tried it, and have not had an issue with the points since. That was 7 yrs ago. None of my other vehicles has ever needed this.
        Maybe our chief electrical guru on the forum can help me to understand why this works

          This device is to help prevent heat damage to the contact points by reducing the inline voltage to them while in use.
