I accidently left the key in the ON position (Motor not running) yesterday while cleaning the engine compartment. I touched the top of the coil and it was HOT, real HOT, "Fry an egg on it" HOT. Then I noticed a hair line crack across the top of the coil and a light oil seeping out of it.
It's an MSD Blaster coil and Mallory Comp 9000 distributor. There are 2 red wires hooked up to the "+" side, and one blue and one green wire hooked up to the "-" side of the coil. It's a freshly built motor, (less than 1000 miles), and I know the previous owner had been experimenting with different components to the ignition system.
It seems to run pretty good but has been fouling plugs. I thought that was just cause it's running a rich gas mixture, but now I am not so certain. Any ideas?
