Thats just the way they made em in those years. My 84 720 is the same. One set is on the intake and the other on the exhaust side. Each set has a different coil. Some say the exhaust side is just to clean up the emissions but I can feel the power loss without them and for sure you need the intake ones, those are the primaries.

Its true, "Rust never sleeps." :(

Its true it was an emission thing. It helps burn HCs on the exhaust side. The question I have since I have never worked on these engines, do they have cateletic converters? I know the indutry had some strange ideas of what would work for emmisions controls but I never truely did understand the duel spark plug thing.

Mine has a cat converter. I think all 720s did. Also an EGR tube to the intake and also air injection tubes to the exhaust manifold.
