Who made this coil Bill?




I know there was a Made In Canada coil, but for the life of me I can't remember if it was Essex or Prestolite that had a Canadian assy plant

Interesting coil info found on fabo archive

"What is the diffrence in the 2 prong ballast resistor? I see some have .25ohm .75ohm or 1.45ohm is one better than the other? I no nothing about ohms. I have a 67 barracuda electronic ign, burned out what looks like may be the original ballast tonight just wondering what to replace it with.

The ballast should match the coil. So the waters are muddy. Here's the info right straight out of the 67 shop manual, with the coils and resistors ORIGINALLY used, so these are for "points" values

My 74 book, which is paper, is similar

Chrysler / Prestolite 2444242 coil, 1.6--1.79 ohms, 9400 to 1170 (must be 11700) secondary
Chrysler / Essex 2444211 1.41 to 1.55 primary, 8000 to 10200 secondary

Ballast (this is the dual one)

.5--.6 ohms (coil side)

4.75 to 5.75 for other side (feeds the ECU)"

Is it safe to decuct that if a car came with prestolite dist then a prestolite coil would be fitted? It's published in Herd's resto guide the above is correct, yet I know that book is full of errors.

The original coil from my Canadian built 1972 "A" body looked just like the 1970-71, etc coils...except it said "Made in Canada". When Performance Car Graphics made the new coil, they had never seen one marked like that before. This was around 2002..

I know, I know, pictures.... I took the pics on a camera that burned to little CDs and my current machine won't read them. I need to transfer from an older computer...then I'll put up a pic.

FWIW;
The Chrysler '72 parts book shows the coil as part# 2495531 (same as earlier years). The '72 FSM shows the same coil numbers as posted above by srt.

part number remained the same up thru at least the mid to late 70's ( maybe later.)

It's the outward appearence that changed

I posted these on the "Totally Anal 340 Thread" but thought they should be here as well.

I hoarded these coils up over the years. These are both from 71 Small blocks, the one dated 330 is from an early 71 340, the other might be from a 318, I'm not sure. They are identical in every aspect except the date codes (which are also pretty close). One of the brackets had a gold finish and one has a bracket with a silver finish, these have never been apart and enough original plating is visible to confirm both as genuine.

Both of these have "Made in Canada" embossed in the tops. They are also quite a bit shorter than the other 69/70 coils I have

Notice how the date codes run across the coils on the short versions and lengthwise on the taller coils. Also notice the gap in the part# ink stamping on the taller coils which is not present on the short coils.

fwiw... I've only seen the short coils on small blocks. So you have a coil collection too also have a electronic regulator collection

Speaking of coils, has anyone seen a 4 digit date? Is this 23rd week of 1970? Coil is NOS.

Thanks

I've used 'Almost NOS' coils as well and felt they were extremely accurate.
