What could be causing this? 1st coil was el cheapo but second was from Napa. Installed the MSD version tonite and don't wanr ro repeat history so plase help /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif Thanks, Tom.

    I don't know what's going on with the coils burning out, but infinite ohms is an open circuit. Zero ohms is a short. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
