The Club Car Ignition Coil on your pre-1996 OHV is a part of a three-piece ignition system. The coil itself generates the high-level voltage that is needed to create a spark. It's essentially a voltage amplifier. Then you have a pulsar coil that is located on the flywheel of the engine. As the golf cart runs, a dead spot on the flywheel the pulsar coil uses communicates a signal to the final part of the system; the igniter. This unit utilizes the signal that the pulsar generates to time the spark and collapse it so the whole process can be repeated hundreds of times per minute. If any of these items fails or gets out of time, the caddie will not run at all.This golf cart ignition coil works for the 1992-1996 Club Car DS models. This was the counterclockwise rotating OHV motor. If you have a clockwise rotation, you have a 1997 or newer, and you should call an expert at Buggies Unlimited to make sure the right part gets sent out.
