The Sparx kit contains everything you need.
In your case you will need the SPX021 (no coils).
Amp with a wired plug.
Socket with mini harness.
Rotor and stator.
Some connectors and sleeving.
Two rotor screws with different threads.
Remove the fuse.
Yours is negative earth, so after removing the old amp and transducer you will be left with just your coils.
After mounting the Sparx amplifier unit [igniter] with its plug...
Fit the rotor loosely with the appropriate screw, [may need shortening a bit].
Fit the stator with pillar screws in the centre of the slots.
Connect the socket and wiring.
Route the black/white and black/yellow wires to the stator, cover them with the sleeving.
*see the instructions.
Connect the WHITE wire to a good earth/battery negative.
The coil negative originally has a White/Black from the old AB11 amplifier...replace it with the new BLACK wire.
The white/pink coil interconnection can be left as is.
The positive conection of the other coil had two white/yellow wires.
One to the old amplifier, replace it with the RED wire.
Leave the other one to the ignition/lighting switches.
Follow the instructions for timing.
I think that covers it, but you may like to fit an engine kill switch.
