Wiring for a 1987 1200 Interstate

Post by M.L. Cook »

The more questions I ask the more I see there are a few that post that are not on the same page as I am. Let me ask just two questions !

1 Which wire do I attach a 12 VDC source to?

2 What wire is the ground ?

NOW PLEASE TRY TO IMAGINE a IGNITION CONTROL UNIT a COIL ASSEMBLY and a PULSE GENERATOR setting on a bench all by its self. There also is a 12 Volt battery. All I am want is to wire these parts and get the plugs to fire when I pass a ferrous material pass the PULSE Generator.

Have I made myself clear?

I have attached a colored diagram ! It is not the same as the diagram that sent to me? What's up???

The last commenter in your original post, and the schematic attachments by Dave in your original post, both answer the question of how to connect power/ground to the iginition control unit.
