You must have the type one Magnavox ignition?

Looks like this?
6-3
2-5
4-1
Coilpack looks squary and boxy. Do yourself a favour, and go to the junkyard, and get a type 2 igniton system.. Its a delco, and can be found on ANY 3800 92-95.

Looks like this..

6
3
2
5
4
1

Much better ignition system. Starts better and better throttle response in higher RPM.

JR is right- they are numbered. the numbers are so small that they get easily covered with grease and dirt. they are written on the sides of the coil pack.
