Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Different coil
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Andre Valkenaers on Friday, October 16, 2015 - 08:51 am:

I bought a few weeks ago some coils on Ebay.
They arrived this week and I started to clean them.
In the pile I found this.

I think I will rebuild it and keep it in my collection of special coils.

I'll bet the guy running the door stamping machine blinked or sneezed and 46 doors got double stamped in the 3 seconds it took for him to open his eyes again.

Could be Charlie. Or perhaps it happened on the day that the workers got the $5.00 a day raise. A matter of Ford pride.

Workers would stamp those boxes twice for coils that double sparked when tested on the HCCT.

Dan,
With new contact points, new capacitor and redone solder points, also inside, It just work right 16 sparks on one revolution and 1.3Amp on my HCCT.

Don't know why the double stamp.

Mistake. Plain & simple. Now if it was a coin or a stamp you might have something special.

I did not start this conversation to know the value of the coil, I did start it to show a curiosity I found in a pile of barn found coils.

I was thinking: there were about 75,000,000 coils made by Ford and one have a double stamp,
it should be worth to show.

Bob, It fits a 1926 Touring as well, (Not the woody, it has a Master coil).

Yeah, if it were a 1955 nickel, you'd be able to afford a LOT of T coils!
