Modernizing the Dinoplex Ignition with help from a German friend

In life we all need some help from time to time. While we are pretty good at cleaning and painting parts one place we are totally useless is when it comes to electricity. Ohms, resistance, and impedance are all foreign terms for us and the only thing we know is that on an Italian car any electrical problem can be traced to a bad ground.

Luckily our fellow Dino friend Adrian from Germany held our hand through the process of updating the original Dinoplex ignition to modern Bosch internals. This is a much more reliable setup and, because it is totally hidden inside the original ignition case, it is impossible to know that the work has been done.

More information on this procedure can be found at: and there are many more detailed photos at the following thread:

Thank you Adrian for your help and we are looking forward to seeing and hearing the ignition perform when we first fire up the engine.

Now for some before and after photos:
