well i pulled the high tension lead from the coil to the dissy and chucked a plug on to the end of it and earthed the plug, then got a mate to turn the engine over and the spark was piss weak, but still a little bit there

yep thats what i am doing, i pulled it off and checked the resistances of it and compared them to the specs in my gregorys, the resistances of the coil seems to be a bit out.

Its a bosch one, does that mean the original has been replaced? (i thought they were motorcraft ones)

Had a mate loose his, pulling into a wash bay at carlovers. Engine died as pulled in, and wouldn't restart.

I've replaced mine completely with a crane multispark ignition system.

If your car isnt lowered you can actually reach under and unplug your old coil and just replug your new coil up and move your car for easier refitment of new coil.There is 2 i think 8 or 6mm bolts which hold the bracket of the coil to the block.Just use a quarter drive ratchet and and small extension with your socket.Doesnt take long to fit.

I realize you've probably already done the job, but this is just for anyone reading this post for the first time.
I've just finished replacing the coil on my EL and it was NOT easy, mainly because of limited access and visibility.

1)Only access is from under the vehicle, on jack stands.
2) Disconnect the large blue plug from the coil by simply squeezing on the wire spring and pull away from the coil. (should come off very easily)
3) Disconnect the wire from the blade terminal which is also attached to the coil.
4) 8mm 1/4 drive socket with short extension bar (no longer than the ratchet itself) and remove top bolt. (you can't actually see the top bolt). Best to fit the socket & extension onto the bolt, then add the ratchet after. (very little room to move as you'll soon see).
5) 10mm 1/4 drive socket to remove bottom bolt. (i don't know why the top & bottom bolts are different sizes, but they are) Remove the old coil.
Now the fun part.......Re-installing......putting the top bolt in while handling the new loose coil.
6) Before you get back under the car, place the 8mm bolt in the socket and tape it into the socket with just a little masking tape so it doesn't fall out every 4 seconds.
7) Fit the lower 10mm bolt first but only finger tight.
8) Screw in the top 8mm bolt by hand using only the socket and extension. (the masking tape will save you swearing profusely every time the bolt falls between the trans mount bracket and engine sump).
9) Then using your ratchet tighten both bolts neatly.
The rest........is easy.
Ford certainly weren't thinking of you and me when they designed the location of the ignition system....That's for sure!
