The Ignitor is compatible with all shift interrupters on boats.

If you have updated the OMC interrupter to a newer CDI Electronics interrupter. You will want to contact CDI electronic about the model interrupter being used. Let them know you are using a PerTronix Ignitor with the model CDI electronic interrupter be used. They will let you know if you need the diode fix.  Most of the time with the CDI electronics interrupter the diode fix is not needed. 

On Mercruiser interrupters no extra parts or wiring are needed. Just hook up the interrupter to it's normal location on the coil.
