K2543 ignition kit


#1

Hello
I like to install the k2543 ignition kit to an old BMW boxer engine with points and manual advance.
The question is if I can replace the points with a non contact sensor, like a hall sensor ,
and if this device is capable of automatic advance ?

Please your advise

Hi, I think this is not possible.
The automatic advance is located in the part of the contact points (with springs that change the ignition moment in function of the rotating speed).
If you replace the contact points with a hall sensor or inductive sensor, the ignition timing will be fixed.
These boxer engines run low revs, so you can leave the contact points. The power (switching of the HV coil) will take over the power transistor.
The contact points will have a very long life.
In your case, use the original BOSCH contact points !!
