Upgrading 1976 Johnson 15-HP to Electronic Ignition

Postby Oldslowandugly » Mon Jun 10, 2019 1:52 pm

I have a 1976 Johnson 15-HP engine, and 1976 was the last year of points ignition.

Q1: Can 1977-and-later electronic ignition be re-fitted to this 1976 power head?

Q2: Assuming all the parts can be sourced, does the electronic plate assembly attach to the power head the same as the points plate?
