1; Does anyone have a wiring diagram. I have an idea how they are wired but I want to make sure.
2; How do you get the side off to replace the capacitor? Are they glued or is the rosin filler holding the sides in place?
3; Is the filler material rosin, it's not tar. Is it ok to replace with tar like the newer coils?
I know I had 4 questions but can't remember the last one but these will get me going. Thank you in advance.
Call R.V. Anderson.
Mark.'ll second Tim's recommendation.. R.V. Anderson is the best.
Hopefully someone will answer within this thread. I'd like to know also
Heinz coils are really not very good, as the points don’t have the “rebound spring “ that all later points have. By my experience the only good way to use Heinz coils is with a E timer
Here a discussion I started in January this year.
I hope R.V. will walk by to complete it.
It show the way I do it and the advice R.V. give me. For me it was a great help and since than I rebuild a few more (15 to go at this time). I learned to use them and learned a few friend how to use them..
For the questions:
I use tar to replace the brown stuff just to eliminate vibration of the wires and the capacitor.
The wiring is similar as the common coils.
About 90% of the Heinze coils I rebuild have an open secondary coil I replace it with good Ford coils or by the coils the part dealers offer.
Sometimes the boxes are hard to open. I use a paint stripper hot air gun to "warm" the box and they will come apart. I said warm it up not burn it.
Hope this helps.
This photos are my new challenge I need to make it run again. Coils are no good to start with.
Thank you that link is a great starting point. Esp suggestions on getting the side off.
