Need J code coil pics

I'm looking for pics of the J code coil location/installation. I've seen photos in the reference books that show it horizontally on top of the intake, and vertically on the front of the block between the alternator and thermostat housing.

I'm also looking for a pic of the location for the dipstick bracket.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, Doug

This picture is from a 29,000 mile original 1968 San Jose built Mercury Cougar XR7. It is an F code 302-2V, but my J code also has the coil up top.


The engine tag is what you can see behind the dipstick bracket.
Heater hose bypassed, the original heater core leaked, Check out those spark plug wires. 2Q 67, is that 2nd quarter 1967?
