Coil Bracket 1800

For those that have installed a new coil (without an armored cable) on an 1800 or 122, do you have pictures of the bracket you fabricated to mount the new coil?

    Coil Bracket 1800

    Same thing on my todo list. I am thinking of 3d printing a bracket that fits where the original was (more of a trial to see if fdm printed abs can withstand an engine environment.) Will post picks when I have it printed and installed.- probably next month.

    Something like this? (A couple different views)

    (The pinch bolt can be a bolt and nut vs threads in the bracket)

      Chris,

      The new coil has those installed on it. I was looking for ideas on how to cover the hole in the engine bay (where the original coil was mounted through).

        This is 1 way.

        https://www.ebay.com/itm/VOLVO-AMAZON-121-122-P-1800-INSTALATION-KIT-FOR-AFTER-MARKET-COIL-3HOLE/331176347838?hash=item4d1ba608be:g:HSwAAOSwQTVWBboP:rk:3:pf:0

        If I am replacing a defective stock coil, I gut the old coil to use as a bracket to hold the new coil. The new coils are smaller in diameter and I glue 2 strips of rubber to the sides of the coil leaving a gap on each strip. The rubber strips hold the coil in place and prevents rattling.

        If you opt for gutting the coil, take precautions. I am pretty sure there are hazardous materials inside like PCBs, so wear a particle mask and use eye protection.
