Wot is this part??

Recommended Posts

Only seen that pack on very early ones, Think it was Herman who linked one previously. It's for the ignition coil for cold starting conditions they fitted a lower Voltage coil, dropped through the resistor pack. When cranking for starting it bypassed the resistors to take into account the cold battery's lower cranking volts.

WRONG - see answer below 💪

have seen a similar setup on a 79 senator but a 6 way resistor pack. that one was used in series with the injectors thou . 

Ah, I think your right now you mention that. It does look too big for a coil. Jogged the grey matter 🤦🏻‍♂️
It was when Herman was talking about early L-Jetronic compared to LE-Jetronic , it is for the injectors

The L-jetronic works with 6Volt injectors, this part is the resistor pack for those injectors. Jess has got also a point, the half of this pack is used also for the ignition but has got another funktion. Where that 4-pack just feeds every injector the 2-pack is overruled by the "16" of the starter motor to give the coil a higher voltage just to start.
