There have been some concerns about water resistance with the 4.0 version, which has been reviewed by our engineering department. There is a simple recommendation to prevent this that can be done in an hour for under $20. All future PinzSSI 4.01 ignitions will include these 2 modifications.
First, remove the coil assembly and stack 2 washers where the mounting holes are to create a gap under the coil plate. This will prevent water pudding under the coils and possibly damaging soldered connections there.
While you have the coil out, use some conformal coating made by MG Chemicals and cover all of the solder connections on the coil circuit board, top and bottom. Just the circuitry, not the coils or voltage converter. This product is available on Amazon for about $13 for the liquid version. Use a small foam rubber brush to wipe it on. 2 coats is good, and it dries fast.
