65 galaxy coil...

Hi all,

I'm still working through problems with my 390. Can someone plese confirm for me what voltage coil should this engine be running? Its got a 12v coil in there at the moment but i'm not sure if its supposed to be a 9v or 12v.

Thanks,
Greg

Put in a petronix electonic ignition with a flame thrower coil.

I don't really want to spend any money on the 390, I plan on doing a 460 conversion soon so it'd be wasted money.

True, we are going to put a 460 into the cougar soon as well, should be fun. Common consensus here is that it should be a 9V coil, but I could be wrong.

Re: 65 galaxy coil...

On my '65 352 I'm still using the original coil and my primary resistance is around 2 ohms and my secondary is around 7,350 ohms. And according to my service manual if you have points then to power wire going to the coil should be 6.9 volts or less.

Re: 65 galaxy coil...

Thanks for the info!

Sounds like the 12 volt coil is not getting the voltage it requires then. My multimeter has packed it in (typical) so I can't measure voltage at the moment... Will check for certain this weekend.
