Delphi or Melco coils?

How to identify type of coil?

Delphi or Melco coils?

Postby GDK [OP] » Dec 01 2012, 12:50am

My coils are OE, have changed my plug wires once but do not remember if the type of coil came into my purchasing decision. How does one determine if their ignition system uses Delphi or Melco coils? Apparently there is a difference based on AC Delco selection of plug wires at Oreilly web site.
