1980 el Tigre 5000 f/a
« on: February 11, 2019, 03:22:18 PM »
Hello all, I tried the search function but got nowhere. I have the dreaded "80 5000 with a bad CDI. somewhere on the innerwebs I saw someone say that a cougar cdi might work. Any help on this or any solutions would be greatly appreciated. The sled is mint. all original. Thanks. Spaceman.

I've also heard of installing more modern (late 80's) 440/530/550 ignition.

Haven't done it myself but Eric Leigland at Classic Cats in Rush City has.
Give him a call.
