Re: Junk Yard TFI and On Board Air
Ford started using the TFI coil in 83, but it didn't make it into most production vehicles until 84.
The coil you found will work just fine.
(did you get the connector and coil bracket with it?)
Do a resistance test across the low voltage terminals...
You should come up with 0.40 to 0.45 Ohm.
If it comes up to these resistance figures, you should be fine.
If you come up with a large amount of resistance or no resistance at all, the coil is defective.
You will have to change coil wires or ends on the coil wire....
