Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Model t Larger KW coils as compared to smaller later coils

I have found out today about the coils for my 1911 are too large to fit in any of the testers that a friend of mine owns (a hand crank unit, ECCT and strobe-spark). Will I need to make adaptors in order to test these? Perhaps there is another method?

Thanks for your input.

Paul ; For the bigger coils I made a bigger box, and connect them to my HCCT.

RV Anderson specializes in rebuilding earlier coils. You might consider sending them to him. He does nice work and is quick and reasonable.

The coil you show is for a 1913, not a 1911! Yes, you must make a new box to test them with.

Paul-
You can take the 1913 coil cox off the car and set it on the bench next to the coil checker. Put all the coils in it, and use the coilbox for contacts. Then just run some alligator clips from the end of the terminals on the porcelain tubes to the contacts on the HCCT. Then just switch the alligator clips from coil to coil. If you clip the input on the Mag side, and then to the Bat side, you can make sure the switch is working properly, too.

Been there, done that.

Thank you for the tips, I will get right on it. I had the car out today and I believe they are skipping a beat!
