I'll pull the cap off the dist and check the coil, get numbers off it,etc. Near as I can tell, there is no external coil, unless it's well hidden.
I asked a queston of an ebay seller of the Omix distributor as to where it was made. One was evasive, just saying it is an exact fit, etc. Another one said he wasn't sure, but that Omix had a plant in Korea. I think that it's a safe bet that if it were made in the states, they'd say so.
