You mean in all the years you've been wrenching on Vairs.... you were never 
concerned wit hthe TEMP  of the coil in the stock location?

130  is scalding to the human touch.....  most electrical is designed for 
under 120 F     Heat kills ..I've been told..

I've never had a coil fail...but then I always, at least, make a Standoff 
between the head and the coils clamp/ bracket..
