Ignition coils

I have a 1995 Barchetta and the ignition coils are held in place with 2 mounting bolts. I noticed when searching for replacements the some new ones only have 1 mounting hole. Will this type fit my application? Thanks!

Re: Ignition coils

Not encoutered this for our "B" but on later Fiats/others makes a one hole/bolt mounting is not uncommon.

So I would be happy to use/accept a single mounting *IF* in all other respects the product met all other specifications/requirements.

If you do go with one bolt mounting vs two then just keep those bolts not required.

In keeping any car, modern or classic YOU NEVER ever ditch old parts UNLESS you can guarantee they are replaceable 20 or 30 years from now.

This is really good advice. Parts that may look a bit manky and worn now are still likely to be better than nothing, further down the line - and even if you don't need them yourself, they will be of value to others. My Matra came with a boot-full of secondhand parts that the previous owner had collected over the years, with a view to buying a project car. In the event, he bought one that had already been fully restored (now sitting in my garage ) so his collection of parts was surplus to requirements, and he passed them on to me. Totting up the secondhand values, I reckon those spares are worth well in excess of 1k. An unexpected bonus...

Re: Ignition coils

I keep and label everything. I also own 5 air-cooled VWs and I have a 8'x12' shed full of spare parts. The Barchetta came with a few spare parts so I already have a box of spare Barchetta parts.

Here's the coils I'm looking to purchase:

Re: Ignition coils

I can't visually recall the Barchetta ones. All I would say is pop the cover off and check that the connector to mounting hole orientations against the new proposed ones. Different angles could mean the your exisitng leads are too short.

Re: Ignition coils

I found the answer to my own question... although the one hole mounting coil may physically fit the cam cover.. the connector socket is different. I ordered two correct coils off ebay. Unfortunately, the car goes into winter storage in a couple of weeks and I don't think the new coils will be here before then.

Re: Ignition coils

But on the bright side, you'll be all ready to go again in the spring

Useful to know that the two types of coil aren't interchangeable, so many thanks for clarifying.
