I think the problem is that I installed the Pertronix Flamethrower Coil, replacing the Lucas Coil, and it somehow fried the Crane Allison switch in the Dizzy (see pic earlier in this thread). When I tested the old Lucas Coil again last night I got a spark so i guess the flamethower must be faulty or I somehow shorted it out??


Anyway, I now have the Pertronix Ignitor in the Dizzy and i plan to use the original Lucas Coil with it. Anyone else have this set up? If so, any issues with voltage to the coil...i.e. I have a 1975 healey and it doesn't have the ballast resistor, only a red wire from the ignition with a red cloth insulating it. I would think the Pertronix Ignitor is compatible with the Lucas Coil but i just want to throw it out there before I make the change.


Thanks for your help!
