Coil question

I'm looking to buy a new coil for my 69 Camaro. The motor is a 327 out of a 65 Chevelle that has been bored .030 over. I've been looking at an Accel Super Stock canister coil but I'm not sure which one would be the best for my motor ( primary resistance, voltage, secondary resistance). Should I also buy the Accel Points Eliminator Replacement Module or would this coil perform just as well with my stock distributor?

Thanks

Lose the Points Distributor and stay away from Accell parts.

If looking original is a concern, get an MSD coil, paint it satin black and set the points and go.

Also you could use a points replacement module like the Pertronix #1181 under the cap of your original distributor- IF it's in real good condition. Their Flamethrower coil looks a lot like an OEM coil.

But like SSedan64 said, the HEI is a real good replacement if you don't mind the look and your intake will clear it.

coil

i've use both pertronix and mallory point elimator kits and both work fine.. but...u need to make sure u have a ballast resistor or the kit WILL fail... if memory serves me its gotta be 2ohms or a little higher. as far as i'm concerned if u went to aftermkt coil that can put out 50k volts.. the coil will use what it need to just the plug gap. if thats 20k volts u didn't need the extra power cause u don't use it...

The original points system he has will have a resistor wire already in place, instead of a ballast resistor.

There are other Pertronix kits like the #1181LS which is easier to install- it doesn't require the distributor to be disassembled for shimming like the #1181 kit requires you to do.

The 1181LS does NOT use a ballast, BTW. But all of this is covered in the info from Pertronix.
