Could heat damage my coil?

I installed a new msd dist. new msd wires.. new battery 8 degrees of timing runs great... almost perfect..
and then
it warms up and when it around 200 * it hesitates , misfires , backfires runs ruff when i give her goo goo juice . the coil im using is accel super coil cylinder shaped chrome job. ( i could do without the fancy shmancy) anyways its about 6000kms old maybe more . Could the heat be hindering or even damaging this coil? as well which is better oil filled or apoxy filled?

thanks again
billC

Your coil will get fairly warm when it's operating, I don't think that's going to cause your problems. Epoxy filled coils are usually used in high vibration applications.

If you post your question in the elec. section Doc will most likely jump on and help. He's great with that sort of problem, helped me a few times. He may want a little more info, like type of dissy ( points or small body HEI ). the type of coil I think you have (Oil Filled) I am told is better.
