Hey guys...I've been reviewing Viking's post in the stickies about doing the NOVA II to fix the transitors on dead coils. Anyone want to venture a guess as to where I should remove epoxy to find the positive terminal on this post 1983 (2) prong coil?





Thanks guys! I am trying to revive old dead suzukis :):banghead3

Follow the small wire, should be under that black epoxy. Dig away at it slowly and carefully.
What should I be digging with ? What is best to use to carve through epoxy-even on the 3 prong ones with the bump?

Thanks Viking !!

I've never done this before...but have all the parts to fix my extra Suzuki coil and will be...but I planned on trying:
picks, my favorite screwdriver, box cutter...lots of stuff. I got the impression you didn't need to worry about the old transistor much since you'll be replacing it! If you break a wire you care about, you have plenty with the NOVA II.

I am going to try the same thing atomix, i was worried about breaking something off and not having anything to solder the nova II wire to...

Suppose I'd probably put the dremel w/ a grinder to use as well if it was taking a while! May actually be best since you can go slowly.
