Is the coil mounted in the vertical position? If not, the windings may not be covered in cooling oil. The accel coils have a higher winding ratio than stock for a hotter spark, so they will get a tad warmer, but should be able to handle it. At first I thought you were running without a ballast resistor. Is your wire from the starter hot all the time as opposed to crank only?
