Twin Plug Coil mountings

I have been in the process of renovating my 78-930. Started as a rolling chassis - frame off paint etc. Started work on it again after 10 years (life and a major gut and build of current house) House is done so I get to work on the car again. The twin plug ignition that my mechanic put in was good but not the way I wanted it. He got the engine running, now I have stripped the top end and redoing things that I could not afford to do previously.

So I am now at the install point on several items and this one is the new mounting of the coils for the twin plug crankfire ignition. This is mounted on an aluminum plate - which is mounted toward the rear engine wall - on the curved frame.

I was wondering what everyone else has done on these mountings. Send pics.

This is the car

Mounting plate



Brackets to hold wire loops/seperators



Installed




I'm aliitle detailed - so these redos take awhile.

Thanks Slyguy. Not trying to show off to anyone - its just how I do things. I own a manufacturing company and we fabricate complicated and detailed items. So maybe bringing work home too much.

My honest reason to show the pics - is I would like to see other ideas that any of you have on this. I would like to see alternate mountings solutions - different wire looms. I was going to use black plastic but found these billet aluminum ones that would act as mounts.

I would like to get some feed back - positive or negative. This is my first attempt at reworking this - maybe too much? After top end of car is reassembled - you won't be able to see most of this anyway.

Thanks for looking,

Mark

Looks really good, tidy.

I added a couple standoffs on each upper corner of my panel bolted through the fire wall so there was no chance of the panel working the lower mounts.

You appear to be ahead of the crowd with this setup I'm sure your time is better spent elsewhere.

Since you asked...here is a photo of my ghetto firewall installation:

I mounted mine on the engine in the middle/rear of the intake so that I could remove the engine without undoing the 12 plug wires and harnesses...

Not quite as clean as mrm's, but it works

I mounted the coils on an aluminum plate and mounted the plate to the firewall with MSD vibration mounts:

I personally think the whole mess looks terrible you need to remove all of it and send it to me for proper disposal. LOL JK I am thinking of putting mine on the intake when i go efi so that i can remove the engine with out unplugging everything.

drmatera,

I was going to copy your coil mounting since I'm using the same coil pack,but I've decided to twin plug. While I was looking at some options, I started looking at your fuel lines. My fuel lines will need to be rebuilt, but I would prefer to use braided or blue line and AN fittings for ease of availability should I need to service something in the future. What fitting did you use to mate up to the fuel rails of the 3.2? Did you have to modify anything? Tell me more, please. We will be start putting the motor back together here in the next month and I want to work out some of the details before we get there.

John

I knew twin plug was in the future so I made my coil mount so it would take 2 coils

I had brackets made for mine, and they are mounted very similar to yours mrm.

I'd send a pic, but well, the engine is in the way.

Here is one of the 930 Twin Plug mount options we offer. We try to keep things modular..



In the past, we have done one this way. Mounted on a 930 manifold.


The 3.2L manifolds get a similar setup..

Okay, so that's very cool and tidy. Nice stuff.
