This question has already been asked.Yes it appears that this coil was for the TRC (injector),but as I said earlier,I think it replaces all previous models.But it would require a different winding ratio,that we will have to work out for ourself.Just because we have a coil doesn't mean it will work.You still need a pulse circuit to run it.

The EI core would have to be custom made.It's not a off the shelf size.It is 3/4" square and the outside legs will be half the size of the center leg.The standard would be 3/8" wide.I'm talking to a company now to see about getting some made.Plus these laminates are thinner than normal also.

Food for thought .The E core in the picture looks in close resemblence of the GM HEI ignition coil used in the earlier electronic ignition systems tha are mounted in the distributor caps.

Not even close in size to a HEI from GM.This coil is twice the size.I'm quite familiar with the HEI junk GM sells.Two different coils.You will have to get them custom made like I already said.Or you can prove me wrong.Good luck with that.

I know your response to the GM coil, DynoDon.

However...

I just happen to have one and don't own a GM anything.  It was on sale 2 years ago at Advanced Auto - so I figued why not.

Now, do I just put it back in a box and continue storing, or get the grinder?   ;D

MSD Core:

3 inch by 3 inch outside to outside.
5/8 inch center leg, 5/8 inch depth also.
3/8 inch end legs, 5/8 inch depth also.

Does close count?

I now need to know how important 10 ohms per foot is (to prevent amp flow and make a static transformer).

I have some 43 and 45 awg wire - don't know if that will work right

Still need an old sewing maching to build a coil winder.
