Hi guys, I have a 1956 FLH that I converted to 12 volt about a year ago. I put one of those cheap chrome coils on the bike that looked good but didn't last. Now I'm in the market for a new "good" coil. I have a points setup now but plan on changing to electronic in the future. Any suggestions for a coil? Also, any suggestions for switching to electronic ignition? Thanks.

I got tired of dealing with those lousy coils, both 6V and 12V versions. Vibrated apart in no time. Do the whole conversion at once, a Mallory setup with a Dyna 3 Ohm coil, and you'll be a happy camper. I know everyone says electronics leave you stranded when they fail, but so will a a bad condenser. You can fix points/condenser on the side of the road, if you carry a spare set. Well, I know carry a spare electronic unit in my tool box,hope I never have to find out how well a roadside repair can be accomplished!
