460 ignition coil

My 85 f250 460ci has old style coil. About 2" round, 6" long with snout.
Looks nothing like the coils found on ebay.

Can an ordinary 12v coil work?

Pretty much, but the electrical connection will be slightly different. You will have to either cut the wires and add a ring terminal or open fork terminal or find a proper Ford coil if you don't want to cut it.
The coil I mentioned is the coil that was on it to start with.
The truck ran fine with it installed.
Had a fire and thought about replacing it.
Will proceed with the coil and see what happens.

Still can not find a throttle solenoid... any ideas?

Thanks for replying.
