PARTS INCLUDED

1 x coil

1 x coil wire boot

2 x ring terminals

1 x coil wire terminal

4 x #10 sheet metal screws 2 x 10-32 coil terminal nuts

4 x 10-32 machine screws and nuts

MOUNTING THE COIL

1. Turn the ignition switch off and disconnect the battery negative

cable.

2. Remove the coil high tension wire from the coil tower.

3. Label and remove all wires from the positive and negative coil

terminals.

4. Remove the existing coil.

5. The Flame-Thrower HV coil can be mounted in a variety of positions and locations. Choose a flat location that is away from direct heat and mechanical linkage, yet is relatively close to the distributor.

Common locations would include a fenderwell or firewall.

6. Verify that the coil high tension and primary ignition wires reach the chosen mounting location.

7. Hold the coil in position and mark the four mounting hole points with a pen or transfer punch.

8. The Flame-Thrower HV coil comes with all the necessary hardware to securely mount it. Machine screws and nuts should be used when the back side of the mounting location is accessible. Use the sheet metal screws for blind mounting locations.

9. Before you begin drilling holes, check to be sure where you are drilling will not result in damage.

10. Blind mounting Flame-Thrower HV coil with sheet metal screws is simple. Each screw has a self tapping point. Using a power drill, position the screw onto each of the marked points and tighten the coil into place.

11. When mounting the coil with the machine screws, use a 1/4” bit to drill a hole in each of the mounting points. Apply a drop of thread lock to each the screw threads and install the provided nuts.

Tighten the coil into place.

ATTACHING THE WIRES

1. Route the coil high tension wire from the distributor to the coil. The coil wire should positively snap onto the coil terminal. If your coil wire has the incorrect terminal end, replace it with the provided terminal and boot.

(See Step #4)

2. Connect all of the wires that were removed from the negative coil terminal of the old coil to the negative terminal of the Flame-Thrower HV coil. If necessary, use the new ring terminals provided.

3. Connect the wires that were removed from the positive coil terminal of the old coil to the positive terminal of the Flame-Thrower HV coil. If necessary, use the new ring terminals provided.

4. If the coil wire has a male stye terminal, you will need to replace it with the provided female terminal. Follow these steps:

A. Strip 3/4” of the insulation to expose the

conductor. Be extra careful not to cut or

damage the core.

B. Fold the conductor back onto the wire.

FINAL CHECKS

1. Check all connections for correctness.

2. Re-attach the battery if disconnected.

3. In performance applications, the spark gap may be increased to take advantage of the extra energy produced by the Flame-Thrower HV

Coil.

Since PerTronix cannot test every configuration, the end user must determine what spark plug gap works best for their application.
