    Help !

    Trying to wire up a new coil ! I have installed an optical points thingy, having trouble with the installation of the blaster coil (40000 volts).
    The wiring loom to the original coil is on a multi plug. I have identified the + and - on the plug and have run wires to the corresponding + and - mounts on the coil.
    Tried to start it and there was a massive power drain, engine not turning and smoke from under the dash !!!

    Are you SURE you put it in the right way round,

    btw what do you need a new coil for anyway, also smoke from the dash cannot be good

    Wish I could be more help but; when you speak of massive power drains followed by smoke, assuming that the polarity is right, you haven't managed to by pass a relay by any chance??

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Hmmmm, I think the auto electrician can have a look. He's a peugeot man !
    With the high compression, racing gas and advanced timing I needed a more accurate better spark.
    Thanks guys
