That's the normal way.

Here's a set up I've never seen before. I'm no electrical expert but this looks like you could very easily have one plug fire less efficiently than the other.

Any thoughts? Opinions?

Mick, you may be thinking of a Dyna DC6-4. It's 2 coils in one for dual plug single fire.
Can't be used with points or a non dwell controlled ignition like dyna S.

It looks legit, but the only way to know, would be to try them.

Thank you. Yes, that is the one I used on my 1980 about 10 years ago. Perfect ...

If I'm not mistaken you also have to split the gap for each cylinder. Meaning if the gap is lets say 40 thousands gap each plug at 20.
