Electronic Ignition for twin engines

You want the earlier gray module not the black one. Originally they were mounted directly to the distributor but Ford eventually figured out that they would last longer if mounted to a heat sink away from the engine (duh). It's easy to find the gray modules on distributors and black modules on heat sinks.
All you have to do is cut the three pins off the top of the distributor mount module and it will bolt to the heat sink. Wiring instructions can be found here; http://gofastforless...gnition/tfi.htm .
The DIS coil can be found on just about every distributorless GM car. They originally mounted directly to the ignition module so you have to get creative when hooking it up. When my buddy built the ignition system on his bike, he just hacked up a DIS module to make a mount for the coil. http://xs650temp.pro...ead=7899&page=1 An alternative would be to cut some strips of copper the same width and thickness as the original pins. Shove them in the holes in the bottom of the coil and bent them over so they stick out the side. Then you could either solder wires to them or slide on female quick disconnects

The TFI module has the highest peak current and best dwell control of any OEM module, and it can be triggered by your points.
I thought one of the reasons to go with electronic ignition was to do away with the points.
