OK motorheads, time to shine!

My 71 Johnson 60 Triple has had an ongoing powerpak (amplifier) problem. This is it's second pack and I'm NOT putting in a new one. I've been told there's a simple solution involving a 12V auto coil with resistor/condensor to replace the original. Anyone got the scoop on this conversion?

Ouch!

It sounds like you have an underlying problem that is taking out the power pack.

Stray currents from a possible short somewhere or a lfunction of another electrical ignition system component are my thoughts.

Let me do some searching. I can't recall of the top of my head right now what the case is, but this has been an issue before.

As far as you're general coil replacement for the powerpack, I am not aware of any. This motor is a 71', so there is alot less funky "gizmo's" being ran off the pack.

I'll get back to ya'

UJ, the leads go direct to the points (nowhere else). I've checked for spikes in V's best I could but no results. Ya notice this motor runs the hottest plugs available? Strange set-up but when she's running right you can't beat her. I know for a fact the coil conversion exists. I just want to hear it from the horses mouth if you know what I mean.
