    leave it stock.. Honda has one of the best stock ignitions... unless your putting down some serious power, but i doubt that or you wouldnt be asking this..

    sorry but i cant help you.. just go sell that distributor and put the stock one back on

    thats a good motto.. hell the factory parts are just as much if not more than aftermarket parts

    are you converting an internal coil to an external coil? Or Vis Versa?

    Is the dizzy coil plugged in? Is the coil connected to the cap?


    They all sound like silly questions, but its the little stuff that always gets you.l
