I am having trouble with the original CDI ignition on our 1968 Evinrude 100hp V4 2-stroke engine.

I have a spare 6A ignition that I would like to try. Do you know if it will work with the Evinrude magnetic sensor?

I have seen a few threads on various forums about the conversion, and the only ones I have seen working are using points. My engine doesn't have a distributor or points, it has what I believe is a magnetic sensor to tell the ignition when to fire.

Do you know if this will work?

Or if you don't know will I damage anything by trying?

I plan to test the module first to make sure it works by using a jumper to short the magnetic sensor wires.

Any other tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
Ian
