Ignition modules and gaps ?????

Recommended Posts

Bailey
My 3410s has an ignition module (points eliminator). It runs well enough, just not exactly how I'd expect, particularly at low rpms. Seems someone mentioned that they use a tighter plug gap when using these...... I'm currently about 12 gapped at the coil and 30 at the plug. Can anyone share their experiences on what has worked for them???

Andy, I put one on our 2210 last week. Didn't touch any gaps, it ran the same as it did on points. Nice low idle. I assume the gaps were both standard, whatever that is. I wonder if all these modules are created equal or if some are better than others. Mine looks like this one http://cgi.ebay.com/Universal-Ignition-Module-Replaces-Points-Condenser-/200375042169?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0 John U

The instructions that came with the one I got from NAPA say to set the air gap on the coil at .012-.015 and the plug gap at .020 - .028. The range seems a little broad, but maybe tweak it for optimal performance.
