Thanks, guys!

That's where it is on Skyler; just seems odd having to feed the coil wire thru the compressor belt's line of travel.

But, IDK how else it could be done.

Yes the coil wire routing seems impractical, but it works. Never had an issue with the A/C belt and coil wire. Note the A/C coil wire is LONGER vs. non A/C cars. Seth Emerson can make one up as he done for both my A/C cars.

No A/C, so I mounted the coil on the 66 More Door vertical in the chrome bracket. I think vertical is the best position, if it can be mounted that way. JMO

When I am selling a wire set, one of the questions I ask both on the order form and also with a phone call, is whether the car is equipped with Air Conditioning or a Smog pump. The coil will move to the rear vertical support with a standard coil wire - as long as there is no drive belt going to the passenger side of the motor, as in an A/C or Smog. My wire sets for "second-belt" cars get a coil wire that is about two inches longer than normal. This allows the wire to "droop" into the middle of the drive belt, keeping it away from the belt, even when it bounces - which it always does. Note, the silicone Taylor wire I use in my sets is more supple than the standard and does "droop" more than the original wire.

...and a really good place to move it if you have a 66 with the cutout for the smog tubes on the right side under the cylinder head mounting location.

Keeps from cooking and killing your coil. Ask me how I know....
