Questions: I installed your electronic ignition distributor and got the coil with it at the same time---I need to test the coil...can you give me the specifications for this coil?
Question By: sb on Apr 18 2018 1:29 AM
The only way to properly test those is with a coil tester. Your local auto electrician will have one.

Questions: can this coil be mounted in any position
Question By: Roger on Oct 12 2016 3:40 PM
I'm sure it could be mounted anywhere on the vehicle as long as you had a proper length wire. I would obviously recommend in the upright position.

Questions: I have a 59' CJ-5 with the original 4-134 F head engine, I thought in the manual it said this was a 6v system, but a replacement coil isn't offered here. Is it actually a 12v system?
Question By: Chris on Sep 18 2013 12:00 AM
We sell both 6 volt and 12 volt coils. If you are 12 volt you need to be using a 12 volt coil. After the mid 50's most Willys went over to 12 volt.

Questions: My 1966 CJ 5 was converted to 12 volt. The alternator starts charging when the engine starts it does not have a voltage regulator. Will that cause my coil to burn out? If so do you have a regulator for the coil?
Question By: Roger on Aug 7 2013 12:00 AM
You were probably originally 12 volt in that year. The alternator you have on the vehicle now probably has an internal regulator. I would have a local auto electrician look at it.

Questions: I just bought a jeep that has been converted to 12 v. Does the coil and starter have to be 12 v or will it run with 6 v equipment. Also, what does the resistor do? It looks like I have a resistor mounted near the firewall.
Question By: Anonymous on Aug 23 2012 12:00 AM
Your starter is ok in 6 volt but it will eventually burn out. I recommend getting our 12volt Hi-torque starter motor.

Questions: My jeep has a 12V battery with a resistor in line with the coil....does this 12V coil eliminate the need for the in line resistor?
Question By: Anonymous on Jan 1 1970 12:00 AM
Yes this is an internal resistor coil. We have complete cable sets ready to go as well.

Questions: I have a 1946 jeep willy cj2a when i got it.It didnt have a coil on it so i bought a 12 volt coil. But i dont have spark should i buy a 6 volt coil and will that get me spark...
Question By: peter on Dec 19 2010 12:00 AM
You need to see what voltage you are running in your jeep. I would check you battery, bulbs, voltage regulator ect...you can damage your electrical by mixing and matching voltage parts.
