I will be looking into that as an option down the road. Meantime...
Anyone got suggestions on how they have cleaned up corrosion on the OEM coil's high tension terminal? It's that pointed and threaded "screw" the cable gets pierced by. Being recessed so deep in the coil, I found it a pain to get anything in there to clean up the metal. Years ago on the restoration I destroyed a small brass brush on a Dremel as it wound itself tight up in the screw threads. BTW, The coils pass the resistance test fine once I can get a connection through the rust.
