I'm installing an electonic ignintion in my '91 Ski Brendella (PCM Ford 351) and I've got a question.
The instructions for the kit say most boats have a resistor off the positive terminal of the coil, and that this should be bypassed.
The manual I have for my engine says it has a resistor.
But it doesn't really look like there is one on my engine. The positive wire coming off the coil is purple, just like they describe. But there's nothing on it in the first five inches or so, then it goes into a harness type thing so I can't really see what's going on. The only thing I see that would maybe the resistor is a circular piece that's on the carb. There's purple and a black wire hooked up to it, and both these wires go into the harness in the same general area as the wire coming off the coil. But I'm guessing this is not it. Any thoughts? Does my engine not have a resistor?
