M38 Coil in 12 Volt???

Post by dpcd67 » Mon Dec 02, 2019 11:09 am

Is there a 12 volt coil that will fit into the sealed M38 Distributor housing? I am building an M38 and it is 12 volt and I won't make this one into 24. Been there, done that, got the T shirt and this one will be 12 volt. This one is 9-51, SN 34323.
