Specs For Ignition Coil On 924s


Observe the following safety measures to avoid damage The high voltage lead must be fitted with a shield-while working on TCI-H ignition systems. ing sleeve of at least 2 k-ohms.

1. Only connect and disconnect testers and leads with ignition turned off.

2. Spring retainers of removed distributor and dust caps must not hang in sensor system while cranking engine.

3. Never connect a capacitor on the ignition coil.
