OK motorheads, time to shine!

Question

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.

      It is strange that the developers did not think of such a nuance. In any case, you need to place an ad on the labor exchange, where you will find employees for the company and they will work with you, only you will need to conduct a preliminary interview

      Creating an application for such a hotel would be the best option. Place your ad on the job exchange on the Internet, I know a few of these, then you can find developers for yourself and the work will go much easier

      You won’t have to search for a long time, rather you will need to choose from the options offered. Look on the Internet for all the available options, such developers usually have their own sites that have all the information you need

      I am sure that if you search in the google search engine you will find a company that is dedicated to that, but to be honest I have not much idea, I never planted the idea of something like that, from my ignorance it is very complicated, but maybe someone who have more notion of it can guide you and can even recommend a company with a good reputation that is dedicated exclusively to it, good luck with all that

      Haven't really targeted geese, think we've got 3 Ross geese a blue goose and one Canada goose. We focus more on ducks, especially when we can get them in the field. Greater and lesser Canada geese around but they are spread out tons of feeds but no large feeds

      Finally got the choirs done. Roofed a shed and built a woodshed. Most done by myself. Now's time to go fishing before the deer season.  Found some crappies tonight, caught 11, missed at least that many. West end. Skunked again, how'd you do, saw you heading out?
