Took a four hour drive yesterday, temperature in the 80's, and neared the 
house when the TR3A stumbled briefly, then died altogether.  Got under the 
hood and found no spark to the plugs.  Checked the voltage at the coil 
positive terminal, and had that, so guessed it was either the coil itself or 
the Pertrinox.  Wiring is solid core and connections are tight.  Dizzy cap 
is good.  Tried three different rotors.  Changed out the dizzy plate to 
points, still no spark.

So, am in the market for a new coil.  This one is an aftermarket replacement 
coil.  Anybody heard anything about limited durability on these?  If looking 
for dependability, are the Flame Throwers better?

Thanks, everyone.
