Default Delco coil

If I was to replace my magnavox with a 92 - 95 Delco coils and icm , from what I read they would bolt up ok ?Also how do you cnnect them is it just a plug connector,as I didnt understand the one thread it looked like you had to hook up wire for wire and is it hard to do? Thankyou

You would need all three coil packs, the icm from a 92-99 and the mounting plate with 3 bolts from an L27. Then it is an easy job.

If you need any/all of the above, I have a set for sale.

The coils them selves can be tested off the car with a multimeter. Just check the resistance across the two terminals of each coil and make sure they register and are near eachother in value.

You broke an upper strut bolt? That'* not good. You should have only tightened that to 18 ft/lbs.

Cylinder numbers can be seen here:

Yup, I'm guilty of breaking my upper strut mount bolt. How dumb of me!
Since the struts needed to be replaced next summer, I just mig welded the stud to the body, temporary fix till I replace the struts and do some work to the frame.
