I agree with you Glenn. In all my wanderings and racing I have mounted mine where it fits best and never had a problem. I have never seen anyone else have a problem also.
there was (in the 80's) a coil that had to be mounted "up" it stated in the instructions supplied. It was a Mallory Pro Master the square coil.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

Thanks you!

Forum update
This was passed to me and comes from the MSD Technical forum http://www.msdignition.com/forum/showthread.php?t=394
"MSD recommends mounting the Blaster 2 Coil in the vertical position so that the internal winding is completely covered with oil. Mounting the coil horizontally does not allow the oil within the coil to sufficiently transfer the heat out of the coil."

I stand corrected, MSD recommends that the Blaster two be mounted vertical. That being said, it is clear that some automotive manufactures produced coils that could be mounted either way.

I will leave my blaster II mounted as is because the engine only runs for short periods of time (8.2 seconds in the quarter, warm up in the pits, it is towed to the line and towed back to the pits)

Awful job, but it has to be removed. I was lucky on mine, all it took was some goof off and occasionally some lacquer thinner. A job that is actually worse is when you spray tub liner were it shouldn't be and don't notice it for a day. LOL

Had to redo my intake gaskets from the aluminum intake swap on my 360. Found a stock baffle and had to cut and modify it. Then drill and tap the bottom of intake for it. Cut the baffle down so it would clear the oil valley Pan gasket. Bought the right stuff for front and rear seals. Long couple days cause I had to do it twice. Rear seal wasn't good enough and leaked after first attempt. Got it now all buttoned up

Oil change and radiator flush. Tomorrow, pulling more roots. It is a utility vehicle after all.

Making some changes to the 5.0 swap from 4 years ago. Going dual exhaust, waiting on the shorty headers and then have to re-route the fuel system and changing the motor mounts.

Got the Moser axles and Lock Right installed in the rear. Everything was pretty straight forward, no surprises. A lot of hard work though.Took me a full day.
Tomorrow I'll get to try everything out.

Today I found out that I couldn't get into low range because the shifter was hitting the tunnel cover and boot so I cut the tunnel cover and moved the boot up some and now I have 4 low. It's great ! I also adjusted my rear drum brakes. This posed some questions because you can't really go by the feel of spinning the tire to see how it's adjusted due to the fact that it turns both axles and is hard to turn. My expert b.i.l. came over. I learned you can adjust them a little bit loose and since they're self adjusting brakes you can just back up several times and stop and they will adjust themselves where they need to be . Awesome ! So we just adjusted them so the drum was touching/sliding over the shoes when installing but when removing the drum you shouldn't have to work it side to side to get it off. I also installed the shifter bushing and washer on my dana 300 down by the shift rails. My drivers side brake light was not working. The terminal on the tail light and on the light bulb were wore down so I put in a new bulb and it works great now. Successful weekend so far.Tomorrow I'm going to install my front driveshaft and max out my articulation on my axles to see if my drive shafts are long enough for articulating on the trail, because I have a 2.5 inch suspension lift.

Wheeled the snot out of it. The new locker in the rear worked like a champ.

The low hanging exhaust tip that I knew was going to give me trouble, reared it's head. While backing down a rock ledge, it caught a rock and wrapped down under the rear axle and exited towards the front of the Jeep. I almost cut it off higher yesterday, but never got around to doing it.

I'll take an easy fix like that any day.
