I have an ignition issue that I need some help with. Any ideas are welcome.
Heres the layout. BBF prestolite distributor with a pertronix conversion kit. Specifically Ignitor II coil and module.
I start the boat up and let it start to warm up, it runs very well for about a minute and then shuts off. I loose all power to the ignition switch, two connectors on my wire bar (the thing on the back of the motor where all wires junction together) are hot to the touch. The two are the batt wire and ignition wire. The little breaker pops on my wire bar and it blows my ignition module. So I bought another module and had the exact same problem. The wire bar only gets hot when the motor is running. I can leave the ignition on without the motor running and nothing gets hot.
The wiring on this boat is very clean. All grounds that I can find are tight. No loose wires hanging around. And the motor turns over VERY well. I have plenty of juice coming from the battery.
Please help. Mind you I can't test with motor running because it keeps blowing the $100 modules.
