Post Coil condensor / capacitor
Not totally positive why I need it, runs without is, but I just put a new coil on after killing another TFI module and I think I should have it since mine broke off years ago. Something about the voltage the field from the coil makes after the distributor opens between contacts.

Looks like this but has a plastic clip. If you ever pulled a coil with the engine bracket, you probably have this thing hanging on it. I might just splice a generic on in since I have the connector still.

I always thought that was to keep radio interference down.

I thought that was how the government kept tabs on your throttle position

its the Illuminati regulating the time travel capabilities of the vehicle. without it you are skipping back in time 1mS for each hour of driving over 88mph.... oh crap their here to kill me now.... yes sir yes sir

please disregard this message

The condenser is there to absorb the fly back voltage from the coil when the field collapses.... phew, that was close
