Replacement Ignition Coil

Hi all. In the middle of replacing the ignition coil in my '75 HJ Premier. Engine is the red 202.
The ignition coil in there at the moment is an old Lucas with little to no other markings on it. What would be the best replacement for this? I've been looking at the Bosch SU12R which seems to be the best bet but just wanted to double check.

186 crankshaft timing gear.

I have to replace the cam gear on a 186. I bought a new set of metal gears to replace the fibre one and I'm wondering how important it is to change the crank gear. It doesn't appear to have much wear and it's stuck on there pretty well so I'm tempted to leave it rather than open a can of worms in trying to get it off. My concern is that I've heard it will whine if I don't swap it, however I've heard other people say not to bother because the new gears will whine anyway. Anyone have experience with this? Thoughts?

Bit more done on the X202

Slow progress due to life getting in the way, but I've got a little more done.
I've fitted a bolt in copper 3 row from Aussie Desert Coolers in Vic & with a factory fan & a Powerbond street series harmonic balancer it's a little tigth but it fit's & it should work nicely with the warm-ish X202.

Changing engine mounts ej holden

Thinking of changing my engine mounts on my ej, have changed the front before but never the rear.

Can I change the rear ones easy enough without needing to lift the engine.I haven't got equipment for lifting it, but was wondering if it is possible to jack it up from underneath and use blocks of wood to protect the sump.

Anyone know the process?

Testbench 202 not starting. Ignition issue/No spark.

Hi fellas.
I've just setup a 202 on a testbench frame and looking to get this thing firing up. For whatever reason I've got no spark. I've even changed distributors and coils from a running vehicle and still no change.

I've hooked up the +ve from the battery terminal to the +ve of the coil, then have a +ve wire going to the +ve of the distributor.

On the negative side, I've got from the -ve of the battery terminal to the -ve of the coil and then to the -ve of the distributor.
