only if your old system had a 1.5 ohm coil. this would only be the later
cars, as in TR6 post 74? which used a ballast resistor. trying to use a 1.5
ohm coil with a pertronix is generally a $100 mistake. but your car,
assuming it is a TR3 as stated in the title, should not have any of this
stuff, and you should be fine with any 3.0 ohm coil. its generally a good
idea to test your coil before using it with a pertronix for the above
any 3.0 ohm coil will do, but you will get better performance with a higher
voltage coil than with an less powerful one. I should also add that you
can gap your plugs wider with a pertronix and high performance coil than
with a low voltage coil and points/condenser. I run about .035 vs .025

Thank you, everone. The original set up was a Pertronix. I switched it
with a points/condensor, but no improvement.
Question: Do Pertronix take a special coil? ISTR that they might....
