PAMCO and coils
« on: May 14, 2011, 09:56:03 am »
OK, dumb question of the day.  I am installing PAMCO and Ultimate High Output Coils on my 70 CB750.  I got the mechanical part in place, and following instructions on http://www.cb750ignition.com/installation2.htm  I know how to connect the PAMCO plate.

Now, the dumb question is about coils.  Each coils has to get one PAMCO signal,, that's clear, but what connects to the other contact on the coil? 

See, here is http://www.cb750ignition.com/17-6903%20Left.JPG  - the 1-4 coil, the bottom wire is from PAMCO plate and the top one is what?  Power from the kill switch?

Please, advise, thank you.

I would think that the Pamco is like every other ignition. The coils have to have battery + to one side of the windings and some kind of ground signal to the other. The ground is usually from the points, ignition pickup or the like.

Thanks for the input, Paul.  That would make sense, I guess I was taking the PAMCO signal as (+).
