Yellow ignition coil


Guest Anonymous

Recommended Posts

I have a pristine yellow ignition coil that I would like to use as a replacement for my stock black ignition coil. I have no idea who made it (label missing) and wonder what ballast resistor is indicated for this coil.

FWIW, the yellow is virtually the same size as the black coil, but it has no markings at all (other that the + and - indicators). Yes, I have checked the underside as this is where the bosch is typically marked. If it matters, the yellow case has 8 uniform crimps where it surrounds the black tower. If I had to guess, I would think this is an Accel coil, but I have nothing to compare it to .

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Sorry, can't find camera. The best I can do is this link. http://www.thepartsbin.com/sitemap/isuzu~ignition_coil~parts.html

I have a yellow coil without any stickers or embossed markings. A friend insists it is a Bosch yellow coil, but I have never heard of this color. Yes: Black, Blue and Red. The terminals are brass and not what appears to be steel in the linked picture. And, where the yellow case surrounds the top of the tower, there are eight small crimps. The pictured coil and the bosch coil are smooth.

If it helps, using an ohmmeter, I compared a Bosch Red Coil to the anonymous Yellow coil.

Testing the Yellow Coil produced twice the resistance (plus and minus terminals) and plus/minus terminals to coil output as the Red Coil. Does that indicate using a ballast resistor of .85 for the Yellow Coil since the Red Coil recommended ballast is 1.5 ohms?

Thanks

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
