      Any recommendations for a replacement coil?

      When I first try to start my engine after 35 years it seems like a sensible idea to have eliminated any potential failures up front and replaced the coil first.  The question is…with what?

      I’ve seen a couple of cars with backup coils fitted, so I’m sure it won’t be wasted money should mine actually work.
