igniton coil question

I have a '78 Honda Express and I want to replace the spark plug wire and boot. Can I just replace the wire or do I have to replace the whole coil?

Re: igniton coil question

the whole coil. get a aftermarket coil with replaceable wire.

Re: igniton coil question

You can definitely replace just the wire and boot, unless this is some special coil

Re: igniton coil question

some coils are hard mounted, most the wire threads in the same way as the boot, just twists on/off. if it wont twist, replace the whole coil, wire and all

Re: igniton coil question

there is a wire extender u can get , kinda like a coupler, twist onto your old wire, then twist on your new wire.

Re: igniton coil question

yea, i've had to "make" a coupler before and just used a screw with the head cutoff and jam it n both sides and tape it up. kinda janky but... mopeds

Re: igniton coil question

Hey, I really like that idea. Someday I'll make a snake of all the spark wire off cuts I have

Re: igniton coil question

at one point and I'm not sure why this came about but we just jammed a safety pin through 2 side by side wires and that worked for a roadside fix, you gotta be careful tho cuz shit's live

You can try using a dremel tool to grind the plastic away from coil wire and resolder a new wire onto the tab. Use jbweld or marine tex gray to fill the plastic back up.
