Anyone every used the 928 shielded wire to fix their 931 distributor pick up ?

No.

IMO though, it is a bloody expensive connector and length of average quality but colourful shielded cable!



It is really the connector that is needed. Recall chasing one many years ago now, to no avail. Could not find a source of new OE or aftermarket plugs. Looks like there are some alternate & marginally cheaper units now available. Shorter but could splice onto the existing cable.

The 928 & 930 plug also appears to be longer. Thake a look at the length of the male pins on the coil.

Here is the 928 pickup coil:

Compare to 924 (NA) pick up coil:

So ... back to your initial question...

Be advised, if you're looking to splice, that the original green wire is a coax cable... just to add to the complexity...

We replaced with twisted pair, about as good for shielding for EM interference...

Sorry if anyone relied on this. Not even close, I'm afraid.

Where did you splice? Where did you obtain the twisted pair wire? Gauge?

My EE crew chief sourced the shielded twisted pair, maybe 20 ga or so...

Didn't splice; replaced the single connector with two spade terminals.
