Finished rewiring with cloth covered wire, turned new stand-offs out of Delrin and replaced a cracked spark ring with one of Bob. S's brass ones - turned out O.K. !
Another photo indicating a "Model 200" as near as I can interpret the casting letters.
Anyone ever seen this maker of HCCT ? The SERVICE ???????? CO. SPRINGFIELD OHIO USA
Looks like a nice job.
It is the Service Electric Co.
I have restored a few of that type HCCT.
The casting is marked Service Products Co. Springfield, Ohio.

Thanks Guys - I can't make out the lettering !
Mine is just like that, but doesn't say anything.
How tall is the casting on the front of yours, Larry ? I've been looking at photos of different testers and some are taller in the front and have cast letters, as does mine - some are quite shorter with no lettering - perhaps the original Ford design ? There is a considerable difference in the shape of the cranking handles - some are near identical to a Ford tapered starting crank handle and mine has a more "bulbous" shape ?
Maybe Ron P. can chime in with more information as our "resident" coil expert ?
Bit of trivia: After John Heinze left Heinze Electric Co., he formed the John O. Heinze Company which later became The Service Products Company.
Over the last twenty years I have found seven different types of HCCT's. The differences are subtle. If you post a photo I can identify which one you have.

Great job Steve. It looks more like it does now then it did before
Here's Mine - I resurrected it from a basket case.
Geez Randal for a minute I thought you been in my garage and taken that picture. Then I realized my HCCT is different brand than yours.
