Just found out that you can get the Ford coils at NAPA. The Echlin brand coil I bought had an IC61 part number on the box. I was out the door for $73 and they had it in stock.
In a discussion I had with Ian Macoombi today he mentioned a specific test that we might be able to do to test the coils. Paul Nimz had told me to check the resistance between the contacts on the plug, but I didn't really get anywhere with that. Ian said maybe Kirk would know what he was talking about. Kirk?

getting them at a shop here (Partsource) and they can't get them. In fact they couldn't get any from any aftermarket source. They ended up buying them from the dealer and took a loss on them as a customer service write-off. I got them for $88 and they paid $160 (both Canadian).
UAP/NAPA has the coils here in Canada listed as Erlich coils but when you get them their genuine Motorcraft coils. I can get them for $88 Cdn or about $59-62 US.
I'm guessing that the only coils available are the Ford coils.
