Anyone use an ignition booster of some sort?
Just curious if anyone has ever used one of those ignition boosters? I've seen them in various forms but basically its just a capacitor or a series of capacitors. I guess it would be a poor man's Capacitive Discharge Ignition system.
I used one on my Galaxie for years until water got in it and ruined it. It worked really well for me. I could definately hear and feel the difference in power. It was a black cylinder about a 1 1/2" dia, 3" long. It was made to plug into the center of your distributor cap and the coil wire plugged into it. I bought it from a guy at a flea market who sold them. I told him one got ruined with water, he said if I had kept it, he would have replaced it for free. Lifetime warranty. I've seen him several times over the years.
Another one I got from an estate. Its new in a box. Its a set of 8 connected by a wire. Apparently you put it on all of the cylinders on the cap and then the wires into them. Haven't tried it yet.
