ok, I think I am going to just run a new relay setup like youve suggested. I did something similar for my electric fuel pump though, so would running both of these off my ignition switch give me trouble? Heres the diagram I was given to set up my fuel pump, and it worked great once I got a good ground connection.
could I pretty much just do the exact same thing for my dizzy?
edit: ok, thanks goldrush. If the relay I have in mind wont work for me, Ill probably just end up just capping off the resistance wire and running a whole new one directly from the ignition switch.
