I bought two of those coils also. I have no immediate project
to use them on, so not sure about the "fitment",
but they threw a nice spark on the Stevens
tester at about 2.2 amps.
I also tested the the primary and secondary on the ohm meter,
and believe they both tested around 1.4 and 6.4K ohms respectively.

Thanks Buccaneer, glad to hear that. I know people have had real trouble with the sierra coils fitting so I would like to know if these fit any better. I would buy oem but i want to keep this build cheap.

Will the laminates come off the coil easily for retrofitting older motors?

I installed the fourth set yesterday and will be doing the fifth set today. They fit well and haven't had any problems with them. More are on order from a different seller.
Still searching for a rudder and hardware to fit a KOBAN. ☺

Coils haven't been received yet ...they won't ship to a post office :cry: for pick up so I hope I am home when the man comes...

I had a adjustable spark tester returned... and credited to my Visa so I ordered another one !

BTW... my memory faded...and I ordered a second pair of coils :lol: now I need 2 new project motors :)

nice sharp screw pin for the HV side i'll test them out with an ohmmeter but I do not really expect any issues . :D

Same thing we are experiencing with packaging. It's poor, but somehow they get here not damaged! The boxes are actually a little better than the OMC System Matched boxes, but to ship them loose in that bag is asking for trouble in my opinion. So far so good. The coils are looking to be OK.
I have a bunch of the OMC S/M ones so not that good for me. I will just use them up on my own stuff.
