I used a TFI coil mount off a 89 Taraus (sp?) at the bone yard and mounted it to the fender (I like it [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img])

Re: Bracket for coil?????

I mounted mine on the firewall with a junkyard bracket.Got my long wire from advance autoparts, they said they always keep a few spare wires for the lifetime sets they sell http://bbs.off-road.com/ubbthreads/d...?Number=573953

I was able to get the E-coil, bracket and connector for $5 at local U-pull from an '89 Taurus. Adapted the bracket to fit in the stock location.

Re: Bracket for coil?????

I mounted the TFI coil on the same bracket I took the can coil off of. Works for me. Not sure what a DurasparkII module is but I have one off a Jeep that says AMC on it and another from a Ford Granada both worked fine. I have just installed an MSD module and it definitely puts out more spark. Good luck.

Re: Bracket for coil?????

Mine came off a 88 taurus w/ a 3.0. Mounted it in the stock location. As far as wires........I used 90 f-150 with a 300 6 cyl. It looks and works like stock.
Now, duraspark/duraspark II question.
Yours is a duraspark. The "II" has the module bolted right to the side of the dist. I know of no one running a setup like that on an AMC engine. (I'm pretty sure you'd have to adapt a ford dist. to an AMC to even have a setup like that [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img])
