All users of the PAMCO ignition system:

There have been a few recent reports of the mounting screw for the PC board coming loose. The screw will not exit the board because the rotor comes in contacts with it, but the screw should be checked, tightened and locked with Permatex Threadlocker "Blue" or LocTite "Blue".



Procedure:

1. Remove the rotor.
2. Remove the hold down screws for the plate.
3. Remove the plate. (It is not necessary to disconnect the wires)
4. Loosen but do not remove the screw.
5. Drip a drop of the "Blue" threadlocker in the screw hole on the back of the plate.
6. Tighten the screw.
7. Wipe any excess threadlocker from the plate.
8. Reinstall the plate.
9. Reinstall the rotor.
10. Retime the engine.

I did it when it was installed.

I also tossed the original hardware and replaced it with stainless allen screws.

IAmGrowler,

Do you mean the hold down screws for the plate?

Maybe those voices aren't so bad after all!

I also replaced the plate mounting screws with allen heads. I'll check mine.
