I have a Gale Goodyear 1951-1954 5HP outboard. '51-54' Gale, Goodyear 5 HP Model 025-3569 (or 5D10G) (Forward and Neutral shift)
I purchased new ignition parts from Sierra. The Coils are Sierra pt # 18-5181.
Says it replaces Johnson/E-rude 582995 and 584477.
When I try to mount the coils, one of the towers hits the Armature plate and pushes the hi voltage cap off of the coil tower. It's too tight a fit.
Question is, did I buy the wrong coils or do I have to curt the tower down an1/8' or so to make room to grind out some material from the Armature Plate to allow the cap to stay in place?
I must add that the old coils (Not sure if original or not, but not plastic coated) did not have boots installed.
