Delco-Remy started to test in 1948 for first electronic ignition system, whilst Lucas started to perform in 1955 for transistorized ignition system. It was used for formula one engine in 1962. After sales of existing power transistor 201 and Autolit (capacitive discharge thyratro’s) Tung-Sol E-4 and E began offering later that year. Pontiac optional EU, offering the first car was breakerless magnetic pulse trigger, Delcotronic some 1963 models; It is also used on some Corvettes. The first commercial all solid-state (SCR) capacitive discharge ignition in Canada are made by Hyland Electronics Lotus 25s in 1963 over the next year in Indianapolis entered Ford, a Lucas system mounted ran a fleet test in 1964 and began in 1958 1965 initially some models, optional EU offers depending on Chrysler Earl W. Meyer in 1963 and continued until 1961, and in 1964 the company’s NASCAR Hemis on the EU by the use of EI worked.
Prest-O-Lite CD-65, the discharge capacity (CD) relied, appeared in 1965 and had “an unprecedented 50,000 mile warranty.” (This AMC products in 1972 is different from the CD Prest-O-Lite system that was introduced and made standard equipment for the 1975 model year.) which is similar to a CD unit is optional, 1966 Delco available in 1967 model year Oldsmobile, Pontiac and GMC vehicles. Also in 1967, Motorola debuted their breakerless CD system. The most famous aftermarket electronic ignition which debuted in 1965, was the Delta Mark 10 capacitive discharge ignition, which was sold assembled or as a kit.
Fiat Dino 1973 and 1975 by Ford and GM (after the 1971 trial) 1971 Chrysler Jaguar XJ Series 1 was followed in 1968 with EU standards is from the first series production car.
In 1967, the Prest-O-Lite is an order to take the burden off of the distributor breaker point during high-speed “Black Box” ignition amplifier, made their factory works used by the Super Stock Coronet and Belvedere Dodge and Plymouth on the drag racers. This amplifier had provided a channel for outside air to cool the unit mounted to the inner side of the firewall of cars. The system (distributor and spark plug) and the rest remain as mechanical systems.
Chrysler introduced an option Click V8 426 340 visits in 1971 as a medium breakerless ignition Street Hemi. For 1972 model year, the system of high-performance engines ((5.6 liters) 340 cu four barrel carburetor EQUIPPED 400 hp visit (298 kW) (7 liters) 400 c) We have become standard was a HIS (5.2 liters) 318 cu in (5.9 L) 360 cu Optional as (6.6 L) twelve barrels to 400 ci Breakerless ignition model range Clicker had to standardize the General 1973 for the 440 cu in (7.2 L) performance is low and the visit of middle income..
For older cars, it is usually possible to retrofit an EI system in place of the mechanical one. In some cases, a modern distributor will fit into the older engine with no other modifications, like the H.E.I. distributor made by General Motors, the Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit and the aforementioned Chrysler-built electronic ignition system .
