Greetings Most Learned Coil Gurus,

As I was clearing some space on the workbench I "reminded" myself of this non-Ford coil. Using the Fun Projects coil beeper and jumpers I found that the windings seem okay. The wooden case is sound. My question is: Was this coil used for a stationary engine, a vehicle or what? Thank you for your time.

Looks like a stationary engine coil (or could be used in a railroad motor car with a one cylinder engine). That's a very interesting coil points set up though! Notice the ratchet wheel. Never seen anything like that, but then I've lead a sheltered life! :-)

I've seen the ratchet wheel used by Heinze or Jacobson-Brandow or ..... I'm not sure, somebody. That is why this post is here, to find out what I can.

David is correct. Stationary engine coil made by Heinze around 1906-7. An identical top and points setup was used by Heinze for coils used on the Ford Models N and R.

There was a discussion on another site about: "Splitdorf coils that have thumb adjustable spark intensifiers, if you're pulling a hill and it starts to miss, you give them another click or two and the miss goes away." Is this setup similar to that?

No; the Split coil uses a Bogert hammer as an armature to act on the contact point carrier. The Heinze lower contact is integral with the armature.

Thank you, David and R.V.. As I do not need this coil (my Taylor Model C has a WICO EK) I will try to direct it to someone who can make use of it.

I Really value the accumulated knowledge on this forum. As has been said so many times before: "No one of us is as smart as all of us together." Thank you, again. Bill

Bill, I could use that for one of my early hit/miss engines. Send me an e-mail if you can and we can talk.
Thanks,
Barry

I would have to take it apart to measure the internal diameter of the coil.

Sorry. I have been resisting that one for too long.
