Where is the coil on a ‘60s Ford 7 liter/427 ?


Recommended Posts

I’m building the AMT ‘65 Galaxie.  I’ve looked at pix of the real engine and looks like the coil is on the driver’s side of the intake manifold.  Is that correct?  Also, in those pix I’m not seeing a wire from the distributor to the coil.  Can that be possible? How should I be wiring the coil? Thanks for the help!

I've seen 'em mounted on the forward driver's side intake manifold, and in front of the head on the driver's side, depending on exact year and options.

Of course there has to be a big secondary wire from the coil to the center terminal of the distributor.

Below is a '64, with the coil in front of the head.
