Well that seems like a good theory to me Pat but the OMG ignition coils all have the HT wire soldered to a tab that runs out the back of the coil so it can exit out the top of the stator and not interfere with the spinning fly wheel. I cant see how a person can wire a coils in the wrong configuration.
I just took the stator back off and I'm going to grab one off another motor.
This is just so weird as I have not seen the brakelight strobing so bright to the point it blows.
Here is the stator. All seems well. This is the second OEM coil I have soldered into this ignition.
