The Carledo revs to 6800rpm before the rev limiter cuts in. The engine has a distributor cap, rotor arm, plug leads and a single coil.
Triggering is by a toothed wheel inside the crankcase and timing controlled by ECU, but you are only interested in the coil right?
That is a standard Cavalier/Astra/Carlton coil, one of those funny shaped aircooled ones so beloved of GM. Even where mine is mounted on the bulkhead above the exhaust and below the fan motor I have had no problems at all. I've got several spare ones about the place, I'll clean one up and see if there is any writing on it to say what it is and what it does!
My maths says 200 sparks/second at 6k too - so we're both right or both wrong!
