RV8/Auto/Pertronix ignition/Flamethrower coil.
Hellooo. The Coupe broke down the other week and, because it 'petered out' rather than cut out 'Doodle Bug' style, I assumed it was a fuel issue. After 10/15 minutes, it started up, ran for 10 minutes, broke down, left it for 10 minutes etc etc until I got home. However, my Hot Rod buddies thought it was electrical. As always, I think they were correct. I replaced the coil and went for a 15 mile drive with no problems.
Is there a way of bench testing the coil with things a 59 year old Hillbilly would have in his Shed ie; no Multimeter etc, just a bit of wire, a bulb and other stuff that's not relevant to this thread.
