Bad News: I have also had two Accel coils fail in Corvair application. (A 1
week old one ruined our time at the Carlisle Convention) Both were used
with standard ignition points. They both began to fail when hot, but would
work for a while longer with the ballast resistor bypassed.
Good News: I have had nothing but success with the MSD Blaster coil, no
matter what configuration; points, Pertronics, Chrysler electronic box, MSD
I agree with you that the Corvair engine compartment temperature is a
factor in the failure of some brands.
