I remember doing this. It was a 71 302 with three on the tree.Give me a 70's GM engine in a pickup any day! Crawl into the engine bay, rest your feet on the frame and tear into it, you can't break anything because there's nothing in there that can't be seen. 3 or 4 vacuum lines, a few electrical wires, and not much else.
Actually my 84 Evo Softail now has two coils and a Crane single fire electronic ignition. Nothing fancy. I'm sick of it's temperamental attitude however and think I'm going to put points back in it with the wasted spark setup. I ran points for nearly 15 years in it and never a problem. Never have cared much for this electronic ignition on my Harley, maybe because I just don't understand it very good. Setting advance curves electronically is not my area of expertise. Changing weights and springs is easy. I can get points to work excellent and then have to rely on my finely tuned sense of eardrum rev limiter. I set this electronic unit rev limiter at 6,000rpm and I feel like it's always shutting the engine down at 3,000rpms. I'm wrong, but that's what it feels like. :nada:I have heard of Harley coils being used on our Onan tractors.
