Ignition Coils

Has one or more of your original coils failed? A new coil will produce many years of reliable sparks. Important Note: Although these coils are sold "each", they should be replaced as a full set.
Pertronix Flame-Thrower Ignition Coil
Flame-Thrower canister coils can benefit virtually any distributor type inductive system. Its higher voltage allows larger spark plug gaps for added power, smoother response and better fuel economy. These coils are internally resisted so they are compatible with many ignition systems.


Pertronix Flame-Thrower II Ignition Coil
Flame-Thrower II coils feature a super low resistance which make them the ideal coil for Ignitor II ignition systems as well as many other high energy ignitions. Low resistance and improved turns ratio help to produce up to 45,000 volts. The higher voltage enables you to run larger spark plug gaps which Pertronix claims adds power and better fuel economy.


Pertronix Flame-Thrower III Ignition Coil
Flame-Thrower III coils feature an ultra low resistance and are designed specifically for the Ignitor III ignition system. Flame Thrower III coils have a high turns ratio and ultra low primary resistance enabling the ignition system to charge faster at high RPMs.

Distributor Caps

Distributor caps are usually at the top of the distributor and are where the spark plug wires attach. The caps can become worn out and crack over time. It is a good idea to check your distributor cap when you change your spark plugs. Cap off your ignition solutions with a new distributor cap!
