Coil Pack LocatIon

PostPost by: RichardHawkins » Sun Oct 18, 2020 2:33 pm

I have decided to remove the distributor completely and install Megajolt, which incorporates a coil pack and a Ford EDIS unit. I have found reasonably unobtrusive locations for most of the extra components, but am currently struggling for a suitable position for the coil pack.

Is there anyone who has carried out this alteration, and where did you put the coil pack?

Spyder put it on the bulkhead for their Zetec cars, see attached photo. Keeps the HT leads short.

Mike

Thanks for the advice and photo. I foolishly forgot to mention my car is a fixed head Elan 1968, I think the engine bay is smaller than a plus two.
