Re: Electrical / Coil Problems
I'm not familiar with the wiring instructions for you igniton so take this with a grain of salt.
If you're setup requires resistance in the coil's primary (ballast resistor or wire) and you don't have one, the coil will overheat. Often times the coil will bludge out on the bottom and may even crack along the top.
Similarly, if you have resistance in the primary circuit when their shouldn't be, the ingition could be starved for voltaged.
