ignition coil question

Postby deerhunter80 » Tue Dec 14, 2010 4:09 pm



on my 78 wing, the coils burnt up after i put on electronic ignition. i was using factory coils. a friend told me to get some Dynatech 2 Ohm coils. when i went to order them they only had 2.2 Ohm. is this the same or will it work?

I'm not sure. Still running points on mine. If you have a Dyna electronic ignition call them and see what they recommend.

What you need are the 3 ohm coils for the 1000 with a Dyna electronic ignition. Either Dyna or Accel. Here is a link for Dyna.

Not true! But if you are running a Dyna with the OEM coils you MUST use the Dyna supplied ballast resistor.

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

Dyna make some nice wires that work well. Otherwise, bulk wire from a fork lift is typically 7 mm solid core stuff. I have the Dyna coil, ignition and wire set up on my '77 and it looks stock and runs sweet.
