For general, installation and operating information, view or download the CoilPrimer.PDF on the prior page.

Make sure you have the required tools and that you understand the instructions BEFORE you purchase the kit version.

We recommend using high voltage wire for connections to the spark plug and engine head (coil's secondary winding leads). If high voltage wire is not used, make sure these wires are kept as far apart from each other, and other wires, as possible, or risk the spark jumping directly from one wire to another, effectively shorting your spark plug, or even damaging your ignition electronics. Yes - even if the wires are insulated, a spark can jump through it!

Sometimes we have "deformed" coils that work perfectly fine, but are not real pretty and may not be liquid-proof. We sell these for $10 less at $39.00. Use the drop-down selector below.

Note that some of these are encased in a cardboard tube instead of PVC because the secondary winding was too large for the PVC tube. These last units will NOT be liquid proof!
