This inexpensive coil works for Energy Transfer ignitions. Emgo part #24-71532 "Universal Coil for both 6V and 12V Points or CDI". I got one for $15. It is made in India but appears well made.
I had to make a small bracket - easy - just a short 1" x 1/8" flat strap ( I did not want drill a new hole in the original ET coil mount brkt but you could). I used a short jumper - white wire in picture (because I didn't want to cut my original wire harness to change terminal ends). And it needed a longer high tension lead - just twist out the wire and twist in your own.
Whether it is better to spend money on the ET system or convert to 12 volts is your decision. At this time it was easier for me to just change the coil. The bike starts and runs great now.
I know this was a topic of discussion here a while back. I posted this on cubsite.com also. Hope this is informative. Al.

BUMP . I just purchased a set of these for my 1966 T100SC and was wondering if anyone can post a picture of how they are wired to the bike. I believe the instructions from the seller are for a battery powered machine not an energy transfer system. I've searched on here and elsewhere on the internet with no luck. Thanks for any help.

I have them on my 67 tr6c. I ditched the 4ca points plate and used the 6ca. It makes life easier. It’s wired pretty much like stock. I moved the new condensers up to the coils.

Look at stock wiring diagram. It’s pretty simple diagram. If I can read it anyone can.

Thanks for the pics. What wire is going to the male terminal on the coil? Black/yellow and black/white to the condensers and then the other wire from the condenser to the coil? Thanks!

I have spark. So for future reference i was able to bolt the emgo coils to the original bracket without having to drill any holes. The emgo coil is drilled for a m5 bolt. I attached new capacitors for each coil to the top bolt holding the coil brackets to the frame. Wires from the points attach to each capacitor and each capacitor has a wire going to the male terminal on its respective coil. Sparky spark spark!
