Powerspark Electronic Ignition explained in more detail:
The kit uses a simple magnetic trigger and optimises dwell to provide a reliable and consistent spark across the rev range. It is easy to install and maintenance free.
Each kit comprises a baseplate with electronic module, trigger ring and all wiring. The new electronic baseplate mounts exactly where the points and condenser baseplate sat. The kit connects directly to the coil using the wires provided, red to the positive side and black to the negative side. The ignition kit will automatically shut down if the ignition is left switched on without the engine running to prevent component damage.
Powerspark Electronic Ignition Kits are designed to work with a coil resistance above 1.5 ohms, typically 3.0 ohms. Some performance coils operate at a lower resistance and will need the High Energy electronic ignition kit.
Full fitting instructions are included with your kit, and plenty more instructions can be found on our blog.

I'm quite certain that the products are going to be fine. I've had recommendations from others for your products. However, with the new situation re brexit and the new customs charges, as I am now finding out about, I think I'll probably try to source the products for my vintage car elsewhere in Europe, as the excise charges are quite high for products coming from the UK. This product incurred an extra 15euro excise, and the 2nd order incurred a 13.50euro charge for customs. This is a real shame, but unfortunately it will make your products a lot more expensive outside the UK. Thank you for the service you provided and its promptness.
