Default Re: What is a good resistor size?

here is another site that is interesting! they use magnetic pickups and not points. Points require an inverter so the spark will happen when the points open.

The point saver is interesting. Before Radio Shack when away you could likely build an HEI for less than that but not in a pretty box. Now with Radio Shack gone there is no place for the average person to walk in and get a resistor or transistor. Easy stuff to find online but I know not everyone likes online.

I think I found that HEI diagram on a motocross site. Both my carts are still running fine with that system, now both using junkyard Ford TFI coils. Anyone wants more info or help with that conversion let me know.

If you have a diagram of that one I would like to see it!

Its the one someone linked to earlier in this thread. I have not looked to see if the original is still there, was not much else of interest since the rest was about motocross bikes.

One seems to be similar to the GM HEI with an inverter and the Ford I will look into and see how it is wired. Both look good, you did a good job. I will put my system back when I find a good potting compound to protect it.

The HEI module and the Duraspark are expecting the same type of input so the same circuit should work. When I had my Mustang I had a Duraspark distributor and and HEI module.

From some of the info I have about the Ford TFI system, when used on the Harley cart may not need an inverter. Have you checked this out? If no inverter is needed it would be a simple wiring job to convert to a point system for the Harley cart.

Eldo, any way to post a parts list for your set up?

I'm just using the TFI coil. The module that is similar to the HEI is the Duraspark2 which was same era as the HEI 75-80's.

I will see what I can dig up on my conversion. I had a complete write up on the BU site but it seems like parts of it are missing. Man that site went to crap. I wonder why they bother to keep it up? First page maybe has 1 or 2 actual posts, rest is spam. Other problem is Radio Shack was the easy place to get parts but they are gone.
