Funny thing, was just thinking about this! Well, I never ended up trying the idea because I just got tired of messing with it and wanted ma spark.
I'm still not 100% clear as to what I was supposed to do...
Luckily or Unluckily the coil Failed on my other Peugeot (103SP) at the Rally in Columbus! So this gives me a chance to try out my hand at Drunken French electrics.
I bought the same coil, points and a new condenser which I plan to mount externally.
That wiring diagram that was drawn up wasn't very clear to me. It would be wonderful if someone would gift to me their Knowledge of this brake light reviving modification. Sometime this weekend or within the next few hours, I plan to start fudging with the ignition to see if I can get her to run again to get rid of that wretched Novi coil. So if anyone would like to chime in and give this electrical dummy some information you will... uhhh win a free doughnut.
