I went to "Pull-A-Part" Saturday and bought a Dodge Neon coil pack for $12.00. Picked up some new plug wires. Made the bracket installed the coil pack...wired it up and it runs excellent. Starts quick and seems to warm up quicker. Many thanks for your idea. I saved a boatload of bucks with this conversion. Now for some new points and a timing set and I believe that all my ignition problems will be solved.

Open the plug gap to .035" , it should give a little performance improvement.
Good to hear it will work with a points ignition. I suspected it would but had nothing to test it on.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Dave0430, I will open them up today. Thanks for all you have given me. I'll keep an eye on the points to see if they last or burn up quickly. May be a Dyna in my future as funds permit. (That means if I can squirl away some bucks the wife doesn't know about)LOL

I bet you are going to find the points will last almost forever with the higher primary resistance of these coils.

I believe that I will have to re-install the ceramic resistor as my wires are heating up to the kill switch. Scootsx2 is helping me with the wiring. I'm waiting on an answer from him.

I didn't think of that, the dwell time may be too long with the points causing too much load on the wiring.

I need to fire my coils and get some spark.
You could probably wire in 2 early GM electronic ignition modules to the pulse generators.

Cancel that thought, won't work on a 1200 since the module controls the timing.

Any one know if this will work on the 1200's 84 - 85 in particular. Be nice if it did

Don\'t pick a fight with an old man, If he\'s too old to fight he\'ll just kill you!

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

Yes, it should work. The 1200 coils are the same as 82-83 1100s.
