Hi All

On two or three occasions my points/coil have failed on rallies....which is extremely annoying as well as embarrassing....

I just wonder is there a fail safe bench test for condensers, coil, etc other than putting on car and running them?

My experience is that these 'new'? cheap Chinese? capacitors fail within a few miles/hours of use, but nervous of all second hand stuff.....

Thanks

Richard

Don't waste your time "static" testing ignition components.
That will not guarantee correct performance under engine operating conditions.

Find a service such as this:

Provide the specs for your ALFA application and they can set your Dizzy for (limited) trouble-free performance. (There is a reason why automotive ignition systems have moved on to solid-state design.) :wink2:
