    Default '96 V8 CSW ignition module

    Having a problem with spark disappearing when the V8 gets hot....

    Haven't looked yet but I know that its a 2 pin output (definitely NOT the STC1184 unit - thats a 3 pin)

    Dan at Roverland mentioned something about a TP100 - VW module that is better then the Landy replacement....

    Has anyone tried something along these lines

    Is it properly installed with the corect heat transfer paste on its belly? They loose spark when the module gets too hot. Need the paste to get rid of heat to the bigger metal parts.

    Bought her in June 2012 for R10k.....she's been standing since then.

    Finally got around to working on her and this is a new problem that came outta nowhere.

    I'm thinking about mounting the module on a heatsink close to the coil on the fender to see if it helps.....

    Still wanna see if the VW module will work. The only problem I can see is that the new generation units work with a Hall Effect sensor and the early V8 Landys had a reluctor wheel & coil

    I have used the tp500 in the past.
    pin 1 and 2 is for pickups
    pin 3 is ignition +
    pin 4 is going to coil.
    the earth is via the mounting
    mount it on a thick piece of alu plate to help as a heatsink.

    Resistor... nope was not even aware of it! It ran happily without it. Maybe next time I will fit the resistors as well. I like the TP500 better than the other modules because there is less wires.

    Mount it in the front so that it get some cold air washing over it. Mine was mounted next to headlamp to keep it cool. Some were mounted on the side of the dizzy..

    Turns out that the resistors are only needed if you're running a Dictator/ Spitronics ECU.....
