Crane or Fast XR700 Electronic Ignition

I have a few installation questions for anyone who may be experienced and familiar with this optical electronic ignition system. Thank you!

Thanks, John. I was having trouble with adjusting the optical trigger. My unit has worked great, but the little wires coming from the trigger through the side of the distributor have gotten stiff and actually move the trigger even though I have the screw on the swing arm tightened well. Since I figured out the problem I guess I no longer need anything. Thanks for the response!

You might still be able to buy a replacement trigger with new wires. I bought one to use as a speedometer cable turn counter for a tripmeter.
