I removed the bracket on the left from a ('66 ?) Fairlane V8.
The bracket on the right was on a '63 170ci Six, but appears incorrect:
it has two mounting tabs, but the '63 170's block has but one mounting
The stock coil measures about .010" over 2-1/4" OD.
The Pertronix FlameThrower measures 2-1/8".
It does not fit very well in the OEM mounting bracket. The bracket is adjustable, but the clamp screw hits the mounting bolt. Beware!
Coil on left is from Fairlane V8; coil on right is dead one from '63 170ci.
We need more pics and info here; if you have some, email us using the link below.
