I have a 26 that someone has taken the stock coils off and put a newer oil filled style 6 volt coil in place of the stock ones. I haven't had it running yet. Will this work or will I hurt anything. this is my first model t. It seems to a simple but confusing car to work on. I must say it is nice to have so much knowledge at my finger tips. thank you all so much for sharing your experience. Allan

Need more info on this one, is a distributor fitted?

Presumably it now has a distributor. If that is the case it should function just fine.
I trust you realize that originally it did not have a distributor. Originally it had 4 "buzz coils" and a timer on the battery voltage side of the system (actually on the ground side) to fire each coil at the correct time.
Distributors have a certain popularity and were offered "after market" in the T era.
Hope this helps

I have a 15 w/ a 26 engine. It too has been changed to a 6v modern coil. I'm having ignition / spark issues now and am troubleshooting with a lot of help and advice from this forum. But, the car had been running just fine with that coil and distributor

Good to know Charlie. I like how you put the coil in the original coil box. Thanks
