We have been running gold box Electromotives on our 2 Esslingers here in Australia for 3 years now and have only had to replace 2 or 3 pickups. We also run an odyssey battery which we have mounted under the drivers seat to keep it away from the heat of the engine. The battery is grounded to the chassis, the module which is mounted on the dash ( again to it away from the heat. I'm not real fussed on having it mounted on the engine as some ignitions are) is grounded via the black wire to the battery. We also ground both coil packs and the ignition body in series to the rocker cover. It is important that the pick up mount is solid and does not flex at all when under load. When checking pick up air gap it is imperative that you use a brass feeler gauge and not a steel one as this will kill the pick up. We get our sensors from Esslinger as the assemble their own and they are a little more robust than the ones supplied by Electromotive. It is also important to keep the sensor clean by using a lint free anti static cloth. Also check to make sure that the pick up wheel is not bent, out of round or damaged in any way. Check your old pick ups to seee if there are any marks on them. We have also found that the 3/8 inch sensor is more pron to malfunction than the 1/2 inch sensor. If you have not read the Electromotive manual go to www.electromotive-inc.com it is very informative and a must to istall your system correctly.
All the best.
Colin
