Re: Hei coil keeps going south
The coils going bad are going to stress the caps in your CD ignition system. My MSD finally pooched due to faulty coils. They fixed it, and I've re-rigged it. Been running a spare distributor with a Pertronix LS in it.
BTW, you SHOULD NOT be running a resistor type coil ( oem runs on 9v) with an MSD> hipo coil, straight 12v ONLY. Let Iman, or someone else confirm what coil works with the HEI module alone. That may be fine with oem voltages, like the Pertronix is.
Either way, running the coil via CD box likely ups the operating temps and it is a GREAT idea to get it out of the cap.
