A while back I got an aftermarket coil for my '59 RAM, today I put everything together, had to lengthen the condenser and ground wires. All that is left to do is put the condenser on and add a new end to the plug wire, I have both parts and will install them soon. First pic is of the coil, second pic is everything put together.
Worked on the RAM today

Looking great. How long did the wires need to be to work?
Reason I ask is that whenever I sell these coils to a Kohler guy, that is the first question I get.

I added about 2.5" to the ground and 3.5" to the condenser wire not including what went into the butt connectors. Another tip, only expose about 5/16" of wire on the plug wire and make sure it is soldered well or it looses it's strength, had to solder it a second time because of this being careful not to heat the coil up.
