The type of electronic ignition in your link does _not_ eliminate the rotor (even when the pics in the link do not show it), only DI does... It eliminates the breaker points. I have put a similar Pertronix ignition in my V4 Saabs, no problem installation and operation ((unit 1847v), cost about US$ 65) . Uses the standard coil and spark plugs. If your coil has a resistor in series, you need to connect the red lead of the electronic ignition to the +12 V side of the resistor. > Anyone konw the type of distributer Saab used in the c900? (Bosch, Delco I think it's a Bosch distributor. Later 900s have electronic ignition, you could probably use one of those distributors (and computers). -- MH '72 97 '77 96 '78 95 '79 96 '91 900i
