1978 conversion to electronic ignition???
Posted 08 November 2003 - 02:24 AM
I'm back again on this issue.
I'm trying to convert my 78 "standard" ignition to electronic ignition. I have replaced the all these parts with a 1979 Nipondenso "electronic" ignition components.
2. Coil, module
The questions I have is that the wiring harness in the car is different than what my electronic ignition cars, of the same vintage have. The wiring diagram is confusing at best in the factory manual!
Basically, I have 4 wire connectors in the harness, on the standard ignition car. (2 to the resistor and 2 to the coil).
The electronic ignition car has only 3 wires in the harness, 2 to resistor and one to coil.
What do I do with the 4 wires in the harness? Are there other wiring changes I need to manke too?

Here is how I've always hooked up my coils on my cars.

Thanks for the drawing. It helps!

I need only 2 wires for the Hitachi system though, but I have 4 in the car's harness. What do I do with the 2 extra going to the resistor?

As for the resistor, the electronic doesn't need it, no need to drop the voltage, which is all it does, so the points don't burn up.
