What is this feature on my Splitdorf coil?

Recommended Posts

What is this raised, elliptical feature that is on the top, back, left of my Splitdorf coil with the top removed.  I have just replaced the original coil with the Harley replacement and for now bypassed the two wires to this feature. But what is (was) it?

Safety spark gap, in case the spark plug wire or plug itself opens this will protect the high tension coil from seeing an open circuit and possibly shorting internally.

Thank you.  I bypassed this .... hoping for the best.
