As far as I know, a 78 EA71 (non Cali) comes with a points and condenser ignition..
read - no electronic pick up
Next high electrical current does not cause heat per say,
I have 5 Brats at this time and all show signs of this
heating to some degree.
The problem is manifest in the connector to the ignition switch.
It builds resistance due to corrosion, this resistance in turn causes the heat.
I have had one connector melt to the point on needing by passed.
Poke yer head under there and look at the main connector for the ignition (some are pick some are white, all have large diameter wires going in and out.)
Does it show signs of overheating?
