Points eliminator

Recommended Posts

Here is what the points eliminator looks like as installed in (or in this case near) the points box. I would not do it this way again. It's an electronic component it should be installed in the console area. All the wires can be routed up there. The instructions say moisture is not issue but heat is an issue. So this activity does not need to happen in this area anymore (if this sounds like the new high school sex ed classes I apologize). I kept the retainer that holds the plunger boot in place and had to fiddle with things until oil quit leaking. When I was done the results wont hardly fit in the points box and since heat is an issue you likely don't want the points cover on anyway.


After that I put on new rollers and painted the bottom of the deck. If you bought new 4" rollers they have now feature 3/4 inch i.d. instead of 5/8. Won't work. I also discovered the rod on my antiscalp rollers had wore a one inch hole where the rod terminates in the baffle. Turns out my junk deck has a perfect baffle with perfect rollers and the rollers on the wore out rod on my "good" deck were perfect because they have not touched the ground in a long time. They are 4 inch rollers! What a wonderful thing it is to get perfection out of a bunch of junk!

After trying to squeeze my electonic module under the points cover, I gave up and mounted it on the vertical part of the frame just behind the motor. This should be a cool and lower vibration area. It's also easy to access if I need to replace it.

My Sten's Meg-Fire has been mounted on the point box for nearly fifteen years and no problem. I also wired it thru the points as I had an occasional 'popping' when trying to start it. Wiring it thru the points eliminated that. I also adjusted points to stay closed longer. Not a problem to date.
