I had a metal bodied suppressor fitted to my original coil. It had a spade connected to the possitive and was mounted to the body next to the coil the bullet connector was not connected anywhere, build date of my car was late 77

260Z Noise Suppressor

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for taking the time to post up that information. It appears that your late 1977, like mine, was wired the same way with a "floating" negative wire to the suppressor. Attached is a picture of how it fits together under the bonnet on my car (although the "floating" negative lead cannot be seen as it tucks away behind the coil).
