Can I swap my SPFI EA82 Coil on to my Carbed EA81? Is the SPFI coil any different than the Carbed coil? I am guessing the SPFI coil may be higher output, is this going to be an issue?

Cheers,

Opps i misread the post...this is what i use on my EA82...i was gonna delete this post but i don't know how haha.

I also used the Accel Coil with no problems!...looks cool too:brow:

Also use NGK wires and Plugs and the BWD/Intermotor stuff for cap and rotor

..generally speaking, FI coils are different from the carb coils ..it will work in the beginning, but over time most likely will prematurely burn out the ignitor within the disy..ignition parts are designed as a system and are meant to work together as such..

Alright, well that won't be any good. I just dropped a new Disty into the EA81.

I remember GD saying something about the MSD coils, as they are oil filled if I remember right, so you can not lay them on their side. I also remember him saying they will burn out the Regulator over time (Few years)

Thanks for the replies, I just repainted the original coil/bracket for the restoration.
