Dual Coils

This may be dumbest question but cannot find the answer. When running dual coils should
both plug wires from one coil run to the same cylinder? Oh yes, single fire with mallory distributor
Thanks Eric

Depends on the coils. If they are dual fire coils, than yes, both wires go to the same cylinder. If they are single fire coils, than one wire to each cylinder.

Thank you Craig. The bike was set up with the wires going to separate coils and was said
to be running like that, but very hard to start, hot or could. I never really thought about it
until I ran across it here.
Thanks alot I appreciate the info
Eric
