    I have been trying to devise a nice, sanitary installation for this TriSpark supplied ignition coil. Does anyone have a picture of their creative genius for this job?

    Tri Spark sell a purpose made bracket for this coil. Have you considered that? Might just save you several hours of wheel re-inventing...

    With the big bracket removed, you may find that the new coil would fit and sit nicely on an S type bracket 06.1242, usually over looked, can also be used with a Tri Spark and standard coils as there is no black box to stow in that area.

    I used the Boyer dual coil, which was slightly easier since the mounting points are on the bottom (top?) face. I made up a small U shape bracket which used the existing coil mounting holes, and mounted the coil on the new bracket. The only problem is that you have to choose between a neat installation with the HT leads coming out the rear, and the 12V feed on the front where it's exposed to the weather, or protectthe 12V feed and have an annoying loop of HT cable from the front of the unit back to the plugs. Not really happy with my solution, will be reworked this winter. I'l ltry to remember to take some photos tonight to show the current setup.

    The CNW coil and mounting adaptor kit (cNw part # 0700-02) meets your requirements.
