I extracted some of this information from the old Topica Loopframe_Guzzi news group (which has now moved to Yahoo!). The epoxy-filled Bosch Blue is the most frequently cited alternative coil used (some report bad experiences with oil filled coils). Whichever one you choose, be sure that it has 3 Ohm resistance. A great cross-reference is any Volkswagen Beetle manufactured between 1975 and 1979 (12 volt).
