Would that take care of it for my '87?

Alec needed that one off of the 87 that was in the yard with the Type II system... Remember How I was in shock to see it on there but I was talking about how it was keyed...

That unit will most likely not work on your car Alec

Alec if you are seriously interested we can research some numbers...

But you may need a diffrent mounting plate, to mount it to your car... And it would be 86-88 depending on the car..

Alec does your car have the Coil pack instead of the seperate coils?

Oh, right...now I remember.

If you guys determine that he needs that pack at the yard and cannot get it anywhere else, I can go back there and get it some time. Let me know...

Yea mines got the magnavox :( The lady who is giving it back to me said her son told her it won't start, and i figure if it'* the module i'll just do a type II swap while i have it apart anyways, cause those ones are so tough.

Looks perfectly fine to me. Worked fine with our Reattas (LN3, '90).

Another alternative would be to do what I did with my '89, and get the Accel performance coils (the top, black plastic) to go on the Magnavox base. Don't think its a real performance mod, but was cheaper than a new Delco or Magnavox coil, and was NEW (had a Delco go bad too)

accel coils are garbage they dont last for ****.

also he dosent have a LN3 in that 87 he has the LG3 (im pretty sure thats the rpo for that engine) which dosent have the same mounting ast the ln3. evil bastard child engine

Also the 87 was a single ring crank sensor... The Type 2 modules for the 87 LG3, and 89-92 3300 V6 are keyed diffrent as the 1993 3300, and the 88-current 3800'* are keyed...

The 89-92 3300 Type II ignition would work, but the mounting plate may be a diffrent story

Correct.... These modules are a single ring like the 87 3.8... But my only question will be the Module mounting plate... But I would think the mounting plate will mount to the Bracket you have on the 87... Might be worth a shot for you
