What coil set has my May-ur friend found?

Post by Duey_C » Thu Sep 26, 2019 6:32 pm

He picked this up at a garage sale lately. What's it for? Very cool find, I thought.
Mayor Keith just put it on top of the display case at the show-grounds. I hid it up in the cupboards. Thankfully, he found it in my absence.

Look real close at the brass nuts. Do they say Heinze in the groove?
I would say that it is for some two cylinder car. It probably would have been used on several makes.

Could be a two cylinder tractor coil set ?

Duane, look very closely at the wood box, often you can see a very faint brand or imprint on the case. To me , it looks like a Schug coil, made in Detroit. The ones I’ve had were oak cased, but that doesn’t mean much. These were used on the very early Ford model A , and C and then a remote switch was used right below the drivers seat in the front panel. If it’s a schug , it’s a home run. Regardless, a very nice coil for any two cylinder auto circa 1900-1905sh. It was used on any 2 cylinder engine, tractor, marine use, etc, but it’s best value is auto related. Nice item. R V Anderson would recognize the top and would likely know the make just from that.

Getting closer for a name on the Type B_______ (I think I see) coil set.
I'll check with Keith this weekend to be sure he brought it back home so it can get closely inspected.
Perhaps I'll drop R V a note and see if I can lead him here.
Once this one is sorted, I'll go to the curio cabinet and grab a coil I received in a pile, photograph it and ask on that one too.
Thank you gentlemen!

I have a single with 3 studs and a metal mounting tab on the back. Looks new and has Detroit Coil stamped in it. Would this be for a hit or miss?

Doggone it, I've been too busy with other things to pay attention. I'm so broke, I can't afford to pay attention. :)
Haven't even bothered RV yet.
I'll try this weekend.
Thanks guys
