1974 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual
My coil overheats very quickly. Tried three different coils: two of the coils are brand new. I've replaced my condenser, points, and plugs and cleaned my carburettor and replaced carburettor kit. When the coil is cool my bug starts better then a new car. When I drive it, it accelerates beautifully. But after a kilometre or so the coil heats up extremely and the car cuts out. Could it be a wiring fault causing the coil to overheat?
