As often happens in the Automotive world, Crane was acquired by another company, but all of the products are exactly the same great features and specifications as they have always been.
These high voltage coils are an excellent supplement to other performance engine additions you may have made. They provide higher energy at the spark plug than stock coils for easier starting in all kinds of weather, and better performance at all speeds. They feature 100% copper wire in all windings, which are oil filled for excellent cooling and high reliability. Alkyd coil towers eliminate failure from flash over and carbon tracking. They are street legal in all 50 states. For 70-78, 79-83's with engine RPM of 6500 or below. One year limited warranty.
1974 and later Z's require retention and use of stock ballast resistor, as opposed to the resistor included with the coil.
This Crane coil is approximately 54 mm in diameter. Installation may be possible with your current bracket (see "Original Brackets" below), or simply add a Chrome Bracket, or Chrome Coil Cover & Bracket, from Related Items below, both of which will work properly with this coil.
Original 240Z coils (and many replacements) were approximately the same diameter as this Crane coil. If you believe you have an original 240Z coil bracket, you should be good to go. Original coils (and most replacements) from 1974-83 were in the range of 4 mm larger, which makes this Crane coil diameter slightly below the range of the factory bracket's adjustment screw. This can be remedied with a carefully cut piece of rubber. Even Nissan original parts often varied, so base your decision on your current coil's diameter, and the adjustment remaining in your current bracket in either direction.
