An ignition coil creates a powerful spark by stepping up 12V to thousands of volts. The coil is a transformer. Datsun 1200 uses a traditional "can" type coil (the can is filled with oil or asphalt for insulation and moisture protection).

Also see: EI Coil for electronic ignition

Overview

Original Coil: Hanshin H5-15-2 or Hitachi C6R-601

Bosch

Bosch OEM replacment coil


There are several common coils in the Australian Bosch GT coil range.

  • GT40: an oil filled conventional type coil, 3 ohm
  • GT40R: same as GT40, but 1.5 ohm for use with a ballast resistor
  • GT40T: a 'transformer' style coil potted in epoxy, 3 ohm
  • GT40RT: same style as GT40T, but 1.5 ohm

GT40R or GT40RT can be used as a direct replacement for the stock 1200 coil, but is less powerful than the stocker 1.3 ohm coil.

Bosch Blue
The Bosch black coil uses varnish & tar in its construction, the blue coil uses Formavar (a high temp varnish) and polypropylene. In theory, the blue coil should hold up better at higher temperatures but users report that both coils do about the same.

GT40R
Primary Resistance: 1.2 ohms
Secondary Resistance: 8-10 Kohms
GT40RT
Primary Resistance: 1.5 ohms
Secondary Resistance: 8.6 Kohms
Bosch EI
Bosch HEC715 is used with electronic ignition. 
Primary Resistance: 0.41 ohms
Secondary Resistance: 7.8 Kohms
