Oil puddling under ignition coil???
Posted by: kenzen ()

Noting my engine has run maybe an hour or 2 in the last 10 years, and never on the road, the good news is I've managed to get my 66 PG 110 timed and idling in the 600 rpm neighborhood, with even flow thru each carb. The off news is as I'm tuning the engine, a puddle of oil is slowly developing under the coil. It seems to be coming out of the vent hole below the coil. Where most likely is that that oil coming from?

thx!

The coil is probably bad, I had mine slip down and rub on the bottom and wear through. Pull it and look at the base.

You should ALWAYS carry a spare Coil and set of Points. (DAMHIK)

Is the coil mounted on the engine?
