Electronic Ignition Part Numbers: A Note.
As we grow and change, so will parts of the business. We do our best to make any transitions as seamless and painless as possible. This is especially true when we inevitably have to change part numbers. Originally, our electronic ignition kit part numbers were things like B46, or B6P12. We had to make a change when we found that this numbering formula was incompatible with our search setup (which we’re also working on, but that’s for another post 😉). A customer searching for B166 found no results, despite the kit being on the website and in stock. The same was true for many of our kits.
We lengthened the SKUs for the purpose of making them searchable on the site, however there were some growing pains along the way (such as updating all of the part numbers in multiple databases effectively by hand and teaching our team the new numbers and how to find them). While these weren’t problems for long, we’ve realized that not everyone has the newest catalog. For that reason we’ve decided to make a post detailing the change, and how to figure out what the new part number is. It’s a fairly simple formula: You just add B9600- to the front of the number, and with the appropriate amount of zeros after the dash. So, B48 becomes “B9600-048.” B48P6 = “B9600-048P6.” B307 becomes “B9600-307.” B1 is just “B9600-001.” So on, and so forth. It’s not a terribly tricky system to pick up on.
That being said, we’re here to help. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out via the contact form or by phone. We’re happy to look the numbers up, and if there’s enough demand, we may even put a chart together!
