Re: Did I croak this coil?

Bought a 1940 coil at a swap meet for $10. then I sent it to Skip for a rebuild, this replaced the remote coil kit someone put on the car before I bought it. No regrets.

Re: It ain't pretty but no light comes through

.030 Hobart wire seemed pretty easy for me, I did not use the HF wire it came with.
I pick up a container of nozzle gel, it help reduce spatter and kept the nozzle clean.
