Install the 123ignition module with the two M7 bolts and square washers. Connect this wire to the red wire coming from the 123 ignition module.

Do not rush things, tidy up everything carefully. The procedure is as follows : a. Use the connectors supplied with the kit with a professional crimping tool, try to borrow one if you do not have one.
Select curve 1, presumed you tune a car on regular fuel. Drive it, until the engine is warm, and measure maximum speed at full throttle. If the maximum speed increases and there is no sign of knocking, select the next curve. Make sure all your electrical connections are absolutely secure, using a cheap crimping tool or ordinairy pliers can cause a bad connections and a major problem in the future! Inferior fuel quality or higher ambient temperatures than during the tuning process, may cause knocking. Raids and Waterproofing The 123 is not absolutely waterproof and getting water into the system can irreversibly destroy it! All over the world — wherever there are Citroens - celebrations will be taking place to commemorate the centenary, and we are pleased to announce the creation of a British event to stand with the best of them.
Put the V-belt on the fanpulley and the fan back on the axle without the bolt and turn the fan around on the axle and double-check to make sure the fan does not touch the wires!

Leave the bolts a little loose so that you can still rotate the ignition unit in the housing. If you are uncertain if they still are ok you can test their isolation by slowly pouring water over them, it should not affect how the engine runs! Vacuum advance sensor for reduced fuel consumption under medium loads. If you have some loctite you can put it on the thread of the fanbolt as extra security. Make sure the engine is set at its static timing point.
Cut the wires so that there is easily reach the coil and take into account that the engine moves. If you own or can borrow a stroboscope timing light, now is a good time to use it. Use tie-wraps and take special care that the wires under no circumstances can touch the hot exhaust and balance pipe and that no sharp edges in the long run can damage the wires insulation. .
