i am currently building a 76 t140v bobber and would like to fit harley coils. is this possible? not a problem fitting them but will they work?i know there is 12 volts going in and thousands of volts coming out. but do all coils work the same and just look different or do they work differently? does anyone out there know.

I tried a beautiful little Harley based German dual output coil on my Boyer equipped 71 Norton. The coil had the correct resistance and worked but got very hot and finally began losing oil. I beleive some of the newer CD ignitions rely on a big voltage shot from a capacitor and can not take a large amperage draw. Electricity for me is blue smoke and voodo.
