Use pinzgauer civilian conversion on halffie?

Post by audiocontr » Sat Jun 27, 2020 9:20 pm

One of my halffies has a military cap, but mcgyvered civilian wires and plugs. One of the wires is shot.

I've tried to MacGyver x2 and it's not working.

I have an old civilian conversion for my pinzgauer laying around. The cap adapter fits the halffie distributor.

Can I use the pinz civilian conversion on a halffie? The rotor clears fine. I figure I'll try the 4cyl cap and see how it goes.

Well if you can use the 2 oppesit points of the 4 cyl cap it should work :roll:

It did work! Perfectly!

I converted a civilian ignition pinz to pinzssi. Had the the old distributor and kit laying around, including a pertronix.

Moved it all over to the haflinger and it works great!

I just covered the extra 2 ports on the cap

Of course if you use a wasted spark coil you can run a Haflinger engine without a rotor or dizzy cap - just put the cap on to keep the dirt out.

Magic - all you need is a dual output wasted spark coil pac :D . As both spark leads fire at the same time, on a 2 cylinder engine you do not need a cap or rotor - fires just on the points - but fires both cylinders at the same time.
