hey guys, so heres the deal, i have an electronic ignition, and i checked my coil yesterday and the spark is very weak, not to mention theres a hole in it... so im looking to buy a new one, but im getting confused becouse of the ohms in the coils.. i wana get a high voltage coil, but some are 3ohm and some 1.5, and theres even .6..
so which will work for me?
i have a 74 super

Yes thats correct..
 
a 3 ohm coil won't get as hot as the others...
 
I've seen 2 ohm coils too...
 
sold as GT40 bosch in Australia
 
and they can't be used with electronic ignitions as they over heat...  and burn out...
