Wanted to Buy Model T Ford Ignition Coils

Looking to buy large stashes of used rebuildable Model T Ford ignition coils. I will buy your used coils outright for cash or trade for my legendary rebuilt coils and take your extras as full or partial payment. The more coils you have the better this works. If the quantity is right, I can also pay ...

Re: Pick up HCCT in Roseville Ca I live in Nampa Id

Joe
Be sure the AC Ammeter is removed and carefully packed in a high density Styrofoam padded box for shipping!!
The meter is the most costly part of a HCCT to replace if damaged and the easiest part to damage if not very carefully handled.

Re: Oil Leak coming from weep hole in starter

John This is a common problem with worn Model T starters and one of the "built in" oil leaks on Model T engine. The Model T generator has a similar issue. The hole letting the excess oil drip out the bottom of the starter case was Ford's solution. The solution is rebuilding the starter (new bushing)...

Re: Rest in Peace Mr. Leon Parker

At her request, I visited Leon Parker's wife Barbara yesterday in Benton Kentucky. We looked over Leon's stash of Model T and A parts and I bought all the ignition coils he had and one 1915 coilbox. She also has many copies of Leon's plans for re-wooding a Model T body and they are for sale. There a...

Re: MAGNETO TROUBLESHOOTING

Have you checked the crankshaft end play?
The magneto output is reduced by the square of the distance the gap increases.

Re: Starter drive

This is a common problem with used starters and can be corrected by re-bushing the stop nut running area.
But it is a slippery slope. After doing so, you may also have to install a new main shaft bushing and have it align reamed.

Re: Any metal workers out there

Just to set the record straight! I DID NOT tell anyone "the early (HCCT) testers made by Ford used them and that they corrode easily" I simply explained, that original Ford coil box contacts were not designed for that type of service and would not stand up to the constant insertion and removal of co...
