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.

Nice and easy to fit with good instructions. Works well car running well.
reliably and fast and uncomplicated
Best choice I had. Only 15 min for installation and engine starts fine
I order a few of these on behalf of a Mini specialist in Sri Lanka, he is very pleased with the quality of the product, and the way it is presented,
When I contact Powerspark who ever I speak to are always very helpful.
Easy fit and worked first time. Did need slightly longer screws.
This was very easy to fit. I have fitted this to my Lotus Elan Sprint and it works fine. My only slight niggle would be is the for the cost involved the earth wire is made the same length as the positive wire. This wasn't a problem for me to extend as I had the correct size cable and soldering station to extend the cable.
My particular distributer also previously had a Lucas Electronic Ignition fitted and the existing distributor only had one holding down screw. This ignition pack requires 2. Hopefully my 1 screw won't come undone but an additional holding down screw in the pack would be brilliant.
