HAS ANYONE HAD THERE IGNITION COIL GET HOT AND START MELTING. MINE GOT HOT AND STARTED MELTING AFTER MY RACE ON SUNDAY. I THINK THIS IS A FREAK THING BUT CURIOUS IF ANYONE HAS HAD THIS PROBLEM TOO?
if u RACE that means u use a TEATHER harness.... if your teather is wired to the negative side of the coil then that is your problem...... leaving the key on with the teather pulled will cause the coil to stay hot and melt the thing


u need to wire up the teather to the crank position sensor

OK THANKS I WILL LOOK INTO THAT BUT I WIRED IT EXACTLY AS WILLIAM YOKLEYS MECHANIC WIRED HIS. CAN YOU KINDA GIVE ME INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO WIRE IT TO THE CRANK SENSOR. PLEASE.
