Ok, so the mileage was back down... The 'new' coil lasted only a few tanks of gas before it started to act just like the other one...

Now have a proper AC Delco coil, brushed the paint off where it grounds on the bracket, cleaned up the bracket and greased both... Runs much smoother (again).

Keeping fingers crossed.

A couple pics;

The real McCoy!

They look almost identical... The AC Delco is a hair thicker, and the potting compound is black.

I just replaced the coil in my '93 and don't remember if I took off the paint, :banghead:
you know I'll need to have it off the next time I open the doghouse. :crying:
