When there is smoke there must be fire.

Post by AndreFordT » Sun Jul 14, 2019 2:41 am

During the rebuild of en engine last Saturday I was recharging the magnets by using the coil loop that came with the engine and was looking good.
Before I tested the coil ring by building it in serie with a 12V 21W light and a 12 battery and checking the change of polarity on each coil. No problem there.
For recharging the magnets, I use three 12V battery's in serie and flash the coil ring a few times. During this there was some smoke coming out of one coil.
Result: magneto coil ring need a rebuild!!!!

First I was thinking to replace only this coil but I found there was no insulation between the coil and the cotton warp. All the loop will come apart and will be rebuild.

Had a sort like problem awhile ago but than there was some fire too.

I forgot to collect the smoke so I will need your bottle. I am also looking for a can of elbow grease and skin varnish.

Have a fine Sunday. I will be rebuilding a coil loop

Dallas, you faked that bottle! I recognise it, it's a Jaguar part.

Guys, guys,

I am only going for the real stuff, no replacements only New Old Stock .
No Jaguar smoke but Model T smoke!
No monkey elbow grease but the real stuff!
No pig skin varnish but authentic skin varnish!


By the way the coil loop is nearly done.
:P :P :P :P

Missing two layers of polyester and one layer of isolation varnish to go and the fire is out.
