Description

This is a replacement electronic ignition control unit for cars equipped with the Magnetti-Marelli Dinoplex AEC 103 A. Our Dinoplex replacement uses new, modern electronic internals packaged inside a excellent quality reproduction housing complete with original-style blue Magnetti Marelli label. As we sell these as complete units with a new housing, no core exchange is required.

For improved heat dissipation, the electronic ignition control unit is enclosed in an aluminum housing mounted securely inside the reproduction housing.

This unit can be used with either the original coil used for points operation (the “emergenza” coil) or an aftermarket performance coil. It should not be used with the original Marelli Dinoplex-type coil, although this coil can remain installed to keep the system’s original appearance.

Installation

Instructions

  1. Red wire should be connected to 12 Volts. The Positive side of the coil can be used, or any 12 volt supply controlled by ignition.
  2. The white wire should be connected to a good earth.
  3. Remove the wire from the negative side of the coil that runs to the distributor and connect this to the green wire.
  4. The Black wire should now be connected to the negative side of the coil.

Switching operation modes

  • Switching from points to electronic with engine running should be avoided as damage may occur to ignition unit.
  • To switch unit from points operation to electronic switching remove housing cover ( 4 screws) and switch rocker switch on electronic unit to ‘1’. Units are default set to ‘0’ for points usage.
  • The green LED will illuminate when running in electronic mode.
