Ignition question
« on: August 16, 2020, 03:21:37 PM »
Hi all. Quick question, and forgive my ignorance but should the ignition coil have continuity across its 2 terminals? The 2 tabs the kill switch joins. Working on a g290 on a 5b.
and also...
I have Z-RC tall intake manifold with Teflon gaskets. Are the Teflon gaskets enough? I donít need another paper gasket there as well do I?

Pretty sure there should be a value of resistance between those terminals.

Teflon is ok just donít over tighten them. They will deform / creep and you will have issues.

There is a resistance between the terminals I found a note I put in a Zen manual !50 ohms if that helps
