Hello fellow boaters. After reading the positive posts on upgrading to Electronic ignition I decided to go with Pertronix p/n: 2842 and Also 2 of the 40,000 Flame throwers 3 OHM. So far the boat runs much better and gets up on a Plain much faster, but I still think it needs a little more tweaking from what I have read.
I read somewhere that the timing should be set to 6 btc. But My engines wouldn’t even run when I tried that, so I timed the two engines according to the Manual. From what I understand the timing , and plugs need to be adjusted accordingly differently with electronic ignition.
Question 1) What should my timing be set too with the new pertronix upgrade and Coils
Question 2) What spark plug should I use or what should I gap the OEM plugs too?
Question 3) I,m not using resistors for the coil, and understand the the 40k Flamethrowers have these built in already. Is this correct?
