    Coil under dash??????????

    I am changing from HEI to magnetic distributor and would like to hide the coil. Is there any reason that I cant put the coil/ ballast resistor under the dash of my 54 truck? there is plenty of room. Thanks in advance Tel

    Not that Im aware of.

    Ive had a couple of rods with under dash coil - no problems at all

    Keeps it nice and dry on open bonnet/open bonnet side vehicles

    No problem at all. Keep a little air space around it though. You can buy 'through bulkhead' connectors. Real Steel have them.

    i have an electrnic moon spedeo in my devon that on start up the milometor would move whils stood still, i think it was picking up something from the coil, it also has inline balast ressistor which gets hot, none off this bothers me so i would do it again
