My flamethrower coil is a much smaller diameter coil than the stock.

How are the rest of you mounting your coils? Are you getting a sleeve to fit it into the original bracket, or are you buying the replacement pertronix bracket?

Thanks All!

Most auto parts stores carry coil brackets that are adustable down to the size of your coil, and in most cases they will mount in the same holes in your existing coil bracket. You may have to cut off the end of the adjusting bolt to make it look right. I think the last one I got was a Mr. Gasket. It was chrome, but I've also seen them in blue, red, and black.

Hmmm...

Keith gave me a suggestion too - just unmount one of the two bolts that are in the stock holder.

Thanks guys - I'll do something that will look "right". I do like the idea of more chrome in the engine bay - mine is still a little light in that area.

And we all know that chrome makes the car go faster, right? ;)

On mine, I cut a piece of tire inner tube that matched the width on the holder, wrapped it around the coil, slid it into the holder, tighted the holder up and no problems so far. Jarrell

Baz Got an Aussie friend who pronounces it Aluminium, never seen him spell it before though! On this side of the pond we call it as we spell it Aluminum :D
