Pertronix makes a lot of nice ignition systems. They are actually a lot cheaper then some of the more popular companies out there list MSD and Crane.

I removed my ignition box and installed a HotSpark unit (Pertronix like device).

Now I don't have power at the coil, when I jumper another source to coil the engine runs.

Is there something specific that I need to do with the wires at the ignition box?
