This is a follow up from a previous thread concerning the location of the condenser on a 1975 280 C distributor. Does this ingnition actually have one or is this some type of Multiple Spark Discharge ignition system where the points only act as a trigger. And if so if anyone has any diagnostic information on checking out the ignition control box this would be greatly appreciated.

You don't have an "ignition" condensor.

ALL of the benzes past something like 1972 came with a transistorized system. While there was still a condensor present, it's only purpose in life is to suppress noise on the radio.

If you send me an email (, I can reply with the section off the service CD that you need for checking the ignition with a volt meter.
