Coil Mounting Bracket Change

Post #1 by old28racer » Thu May 16, 2019 11:28 pm

I have a 300 inline 6 in my '72 F250 and would like to change the coil mounting bracket from the OEM flat position to a straight up mode as it would be much easier to get to for this "old" man. I have not found a bracket that will do this and mount in the same area. Open to all idea's :bang:

You make a channel that fits tightly over the mounting boss on the head and weld it to the back of the stock coil bracket.

OK
In order to get a picture you need to remove the coil from the head to see the mounting boss that is part of the head.
The sides of the boss are not quite parallel so the channel sides that fit over the boss will have side angles that match.

I have my coil upright in the same location. I just positioned the bracket on the coil and bolted it on.

BigBlue94 -- I sent a second PM with my address information. I think my PM file was over full and was not sending. Thanks for the bracket.

In the mean time before I install my pertronix Ignitor, relay & Flame thrower 3 ohm coil I would like to put in new Motorcraft plugs, HI Pro Pertronix plug wires and a new good quality stock style coil. The motor ignition is currently stock with P&C distributor & running the original brown/pink resistor wire. Not sure if the coil needs to be a 1.5 ohm unit? What have you guys used? looking for something in the $20-25 range.

Was at the JY today, and noticed quite a few upright brackets like the one I have. And confirmed my suspicion, that it's an efi square coil bracket with a round clamp added. I think the added round clamp is used for attaching the end pole of a chain link fence to a structure. It works though, and with a little paint, will look great.

It's going on an old truck, no show truck, just my get around town ride. If it holds the coil vertical I will be happy. Thanks again.

You're more than welcome!

I didnt even notice its 'true nature' until I really looked at it, so it's not super janky looking or anything.

dr. jay,
ur plug wire set looks beautiful.
lots better than my used 460 spaghetti.

also FWIW, those not using the mech. fuel pump, the TFI coil bracket bolts beautifully to the fuel pump boss , and ideal location, especially if using HEI, trigger, as it sits in perfect proximity to the distributor.
a long love affair with the 300 six.
my lastest and final fling is a fresh 300 in an 88 ford f350 dually 4X flatbed
