These instructions are a general guide for installing the system to various machines and therefore it may be necessary to modify the length or routing of some wires in order to complete the installation. All connections should be made using good quality crimped or soldered connections; twisted wires will not give satisfactory operation. Wiring should be trimmed to the correct length, excess wire should not be coiled up as this can affect the correct running of the ignition system. If electric welding is to be carried out, the ignition module should be disconnected and its connectors covered with insulation, to help prevent stray sparks from damaging the module. If in doubt, remove the unit from the machine.
Fitting—stage 1 1. For safety, disconnect the battery. 2. Fit the ignition module in a convenient place. This could be under (or on the side of) the battery platform, or secured to the frame using a suitable mounting bracket. The unit can be orientated in any position, but this should be onto a flat surface, if possible. 3
The module can be secured by the mounting flanges using the two M5 bolts, washers & nuts. Alternatively, the mounting flanges can be removed by slackening the bracket securing screws and sliding the brackets out of the dovetail slots. The module can then be mounted using large tie-straps, with a small sheet of rubber between the case & the frame. 3. Fit the ignition coil in a convenient place. Suspend the coil by the two mounting lugs, using the M5 bolts, washers & nuts, provided. Alternatively, to avoid the need for drilling or a mounting bracket, the coil can be rubber mounted using two small pieces of rubber tubing (such as fuel pipe or heater hose) & two large tie-straps, see figs. 1 / 1a. The coil can then be secured to the frame tube by fully tightening the tie-straps. Fit the new h.t. leads by pushing the brass connectors fully into the h.t. outlets of the coil, along with the rubber boots. Small tie-straps can be placed around the rubber boots & tightened to give extra security, if desired. The h.t. leads should now be cut to length, if necessary & the plug caps screwed onto the ends of the h.t. leads. Push the plug caps onto the plugs (either way around), they should click into place.
