ignition coil

i have an 03 tejas sj that i got a few weeks ago. last night it died on the interstate. long story short i think my coil is bad. it is a v107 s&s and when i try and google which coil it takes i get 100 options. it has the old points ignition and everything is telling me stuff about electronic ignition. cleaned the points and changed the plugs but still no spark to the plugs. any advice/info would be appreciated.

on a side note, whoever had it before me butchered the smart flash wiring. only have running lights and turn signals in back, no brake. they wired in a little extra brake light. any advice on how to get the brake lights wired correctly would be awesome!

Two terminals means its a dual fire coil.
There should be an ohm rating on the body some where printed in white.
Prolly the easiest to find coil for a harley.
So you want a dual fire point ignition coil.

if it still has points and condenser, did you replace them? cheaper fix and they do tend to need replacing or at least adjusting often. might be a time to get a good electronic ignition. just a thought for reliability. not that they can't fail too, but less hand holding than points.

generally what i found on the choppers, if you have points and condenser, you can just get a coil for a late 80s softail and it'll work fine. hard to imagine you need anything more specialized with points setup?

brake light - basically find a switch on 12v power wire, run parallel to both front and rear brake light switches, then parallel both to the actual tailight, which is ground through the other lead of course. seems like i used to use a different fuse for the brakelight than the head/tail lights, so if lights failed, i'd still have brake light.
