Contact Sets

Ignition contact sets disturb the flow of current within the ignition coil. This helps create enough energy to ignite the fuel. To ensure your engine comes to life every time, buy a new ignition contact set for less at CarParts4Less.co.uk.

The contact set (or 'breaker') includes a number of tungsten breaking points. These points are switches in an electrical circuit. The contact set usually mounts on a plate that rotates relative to the camshaft driving it. As part of a self-induction process, the points break the current flow within the primary ignition coil. An electromagnetic field then engulfs a larger secondary coil. This turns the low power from the battery into the high voltage required to bring your engine to life. The ignition condenser absorbs the current to reduce damage on the breaking points, but as these points open and close every time your engine turns, they do wear out over time.
