I have a 1965 B40 Enduro, someone in the past has put a Mighty Max on it an one of those big blue capicaters on it, My question is what else do I need except a coil? and what coil do I need, an AC coil off a ET, OR a 6 v or a 12 v regular coil?
Thank you in advance, Dave

Depends on what you're using to run the ignition. I assume that since the mity max is on there, the points are running of the alternator. A non-ET stator would certainly help in starting since the ET alto output is pretty meager. You will need a 12 Volt coil and a set of non-ET points.

Good luck, man. bigt
