Replaced the original 16-year old coil yesterday in search for the solution to the infamous stall/no-start problems. Took one look at the coil bracket and thought, great can just remove the 2 long 10mm headed bolts holding the coil on. What wise-*** designer put nuts on the back of the bracket that spin and you can't even get too?? Typical...

Removed the whole bracket from underneath and installed an "Accel Dodge Magnum Truck/Jeep Super Coil - #140021". My old coil did look like crap with cracks all over the plastic housing I couldn't see until removed.

Thanks to hdrocknroll for suggesting this model/type of coil and only time will tell if it helped with the problems. While $60 from Advance I got $20 knocked off for a total of $40 plus tax in using the good ole' CCABIN code.

Well ! at least you probably had two bolts holding the coil on, mine only had one, so I dug up a 1/4 20 bolt and nut the right length, and bolted the new one on.
I used a couple of ratchet wrenches, to get in there, and get it off and back on.

mounted my towhooks today. It is not complete. I am still going to use 1/4" plate on the outside of the frame and another inside as well inorder to sandwich them. I am also planing on running a 1.75" tubing .25wall under the rad sup.

Do you guys think this is a good idea. or is there a better way i should tackle this.

now.

how it should be when im finished.


Red= 1/4 inch plate
Blue=1.75" tube .25 wall for support. (weld to rad sup??)
Green=1/4 plate welded to red plate to bolt towhooks to unibody.(support).

any ideas, please feel free to chime in. im all open to suggestions as I am in the begining stages of this project...

Well i can tell you my format is strong, the only thing I can suggest is weld and more welds. Just make sure you don't use anything any less than 1/2 steel and use the proper tubing.

1/2", holy hell!!!!!!!!! Im using 1/4 inch and i think that is OVERKILL. I know that 1/4" steel plate and tubing is strong enough. I just want my design to be a GREAT recovery point and a good lower support for my bumper which will come by this summer.

1/2 " plate would be WAY too much....sticking with 1/4.

Nice, 50% of bolts/nuts missing. You and those new wrenches! LOL. Actually I could have removed the front bolt/nut with my ratcheting wrenches but the back one would have been tough since the ground wires were pulled tight right across the bolt where I couldn't see the nut.

BTW, isn't that new coil supposed to be grounded and how can it be if covered w/thick black paint? I emery clothed the paint off where the bolt/washer touches, put some dielectric grease on it, and don't know if it matters or not.
