confusion about camera capacitor/ignition coil wiki article

Unread postAuthor: JDP12 » Sat Nov 24, 2007 11:32 am

Hey all, i was lookin at the wiki article on wiring up a capacitor/ ignition coil setup, and was wondering, why do some pictures show two wires coming out of one hole and some show only one- an example is step 4- they show two wires- is that just a screwup or what?

looks like someone just wanted to make the wires larger and then neglected to fill the space with color. you only need one wire.

i wonder how many more people see that as 2 wires as opposed to 1 wire.

i can imagine how someone would get frustrated trying to solder 2 wires on every hole that the images in the wiki show.

Step 4 is depicting 1 wire. I gues the artist was going for effect, lol. I think it's intended to be a heavier gauge wire to that side of the circuit.

Fast posting causes a ehco effect, yessssssss, this is a edit. I'm a slowwwwwww typer! :P :P :P
