Guys is there some way I can test or check if my coil is properly operating ie. putting out enough spark. My dist. is also MSD with electronic guts built in and I do not have MSD DIS ignition control box (red box thing).
I have an intermittant miss on #8 cylinder. Have replaced spark plug wires.Coil was mounted sideways and after checking around I was told coil should be mounted vertically. Supposedly when coil is mounted sideways the inner windings are not completely covered by oil and the high heat in engine compartment will allow the windings to break down. Anyone else heard of this or is this an "old wives tale"?
