    There are voltage reducers out there that will reduce from 24v to 12v 4 amp rating but they are not cheap.

    Thank you for that diagram Mr. Magnet. That is even better than the one that came with my transducer, as yours shows a dual output coil, such as I am using.

    I think I may have popped the transducer : (

    So, I will reconnect the original condenser and omit the transducer for now - and see if I get spark.

    Here is my wiring I currently have in place ( except I have a dual coil)

    Default 24v coil

    Hi All
    Why use a 12v coil, why not get a 24v one that would save lots of hasels and no need for 12v converters, resistors etc, they should be availble at your local auto store.

    Regards

    This is for a wasted spark ignition that doesn't use a distributor.

    Default Problem solved

    Thanks for all the input. I was checking the points to verify they were grounded... And they weren't . I don't know why they weren't .... Maybe with the stock magneto system a ground is supplied another way ?

    I won't pretend to understand but I ran a ground wire from my 12v battery ground and BANG! I had spark.

    Good to get this monkey of my back, I was putting this off for months.

    Seems you are dealing with this option.....
    Careful not to fry the point saver module.

    Yes, exactly. I might add Mr. Kirk was very responsive to all my questions, I'm sure he thinks I never saw a wrench or spark plug in my life !
