Ignition amplifier bypass or coil upgrade?
Posted 09 April 2004 - 09:20 PM
I have a 89 ea82 non turbo 4x4 d/r 5 speed GL wagon.
Does any one know if there is a way to bypass the ignition amplifier
on the coil bracket?
Or if there is a coil I can install that will bypass this?
Maybe someone out there has one they could sell me? (coil bracket)
Lots of questions...eh?

That doesn't sound good at all.
Any Idea where I could get one?
Closest junk yard is 120 mi. down the road.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

my 85 mpfi system doesnt have one, as far as i know. but my 89 spfi has a coil with alot of plastic on it.
what cars had this thing?

Whot it does, one side recieves signal from the ECU, the other side connects to the negative side of the coil. When the computer sends the IA the signal, the transistor closes, grounding the coil, and fireing the spark. The two wires you can see, the third grounds to the coil bracket, which is why you MUST have a good ground through the bracket.
Simple, in theory, really.
Did a little research, here's whot I came up with, one of these MAY work:

Sorry...it is an spfi.
I will check out these links and see what I can learn.
The one in the 88 parts car already went into the wifes car..so here I sit
Put in new timing belts and coil still no luck...was the same thing the wifes car did...ran fine one day and wouldn't start the next day. (head gettin soar)
Tried this bracket in her car and get the same thing...dead.
Thanks for the links...I'll see what I can find out
