Default Ignition Coil on eBay...Authentic

That link doesn't work for me.
I bought one of those take outs, too. For a spare. I see there is a nos coil available now. I'm not feeling the urge to spend $125 though.

Hate to spend that kind of money on a 40+ year old NOS coil, but I just did.
I needed a spare, and the Chinese repros aren't an option (no matter how much cheaper) for me.

Dan, my personal opinion (and you know how that goes!!! ) is that this is the way to go. When I got my truck, it would crap out when hot and not start. I had to wait until it cooled down and then, maybe, just maybe it would start. At the time, I was just getting back into the M715 ownership and knew nothing about the parts. But I was in Philadelphia at a military surplus place and bought a used one. I think I paid $60. But it solved the problem and I made sure that the Chinese coil went into the bin!

Looking at the picture on eBay, they do look like the original coil, not a reproduction. I have an NOS entire ignitor and I have opened it up and compared it to the coil that I have now and it is identical.

I don't know where the guy in Turkey got all of this stuff but it seems to be genuine and original. There also was a guy at one time in Israel who had this stuff NOS as well.
