Throttle Cables and Ingition Mods

Another shot of the cable bracket. I used a short piece of VW throttle cable housing  held onto the bracket with a 3/8 cable clamp.

In this shot you can see how the bracket bolts to the Pinto cable bracket. The stock Pinto cable loops around and bolts to the yellow bracket.

I mounted all the ignition components on the right rear panel. You can see the 1.35 ohm ballast resistor just above the Duraspark control box, You definitively need this or the coil will fry.

This the basic Duraspark wiring diagram, The only change I made to it is the red wire going from the two wire plug to the ingition switch now goes to the starter solenoid.
