Hi all

Is this coil suitable for a 2liter pinto?

I'm not getting a spark and since I don't know the age or condition of the coil, thought I would get a new one.

While I'm at it I'm going to change the leads as well. https://simonbbc.com/Ford-Pinto-OHC-HT-Leads-8mm-Double-Silicone#product-reviews

 Are these suitable? Thanks.

I have read a lot about recent accuspark distributors chewing up the aux shaft and ruining engines. I think it has only started happening in the last few years. Mine is 6 years old and fine. If you look at kit car Facebook groups there are a lot of very unhappy people so I would be careful.

Thanks

Been doing some reading, if I were to buy the kit from the eBay link, could I  get rid of the black box?. I'd then have a full new ignition system and hopefully a more reliable setup.

So, I went ahead and bought the kit from the eBay link above. New dizzy, coil, leads and plugs. Fitted it yesterday, cut all the untidy wiring for the motorcraft box out, Much neater now. Fired straight up, hopefully more reliable now :).

Hi, 

Sorry I don't know. But 5 months after putting that kit on, I've had no problems since.
