Modern Ignition Coils of the COP type

Post by tornitore45 » Sat Feb 14, 2015 6:52 am

COP (Coil Over Plug) are much smaller than conventional coils, therefore attractive for models.
Which beg the question...

Are they used in a conventional Kettering system or are they driven by Capacitive Discharge System?
