    New Coil Question

    So during a lot of "FL Winter Work" last week (meaning it was too windy to fish), part of my project list included replacing the ignition coil (along with the plugs/wires/cap & rotor). All seems well, but while carrying the coil to the boat I was "shaking it", and noticed it seemed the liguid (oil I presume) inside was sloshing about. That stopped me, and back to the garage I went to check the original coil. No evidence of internal material movement with the original coil. Shake the new coil and it is like a water bottle only 7/8 full. Wondering if this is common, or could become problematic?

    TIA.

    Marine coils are epoxy filled, no oil.

      Sounds like the marina sold me the wrong one! Thanks.
