The patent referred to involved the provision
of a vibrator connected so that it could be cut
into the low tension or breaker side of the igni
tion system. The distributor would then serve,
as before, to carry the high tension current to

in conjunction with an ordinary battery ignition

lead it from the spark coil is connected with
one terminal 26 of the conventional ignition
switch 25 and the lead 28 to the breaker is con
nected with the other terminal 2? of this same
switch. A short wire 28 connects the spark coil
terminal 26 of switch 25 with terminal 2a of the
emergency control switch 243.? The other terminal
