Default Old Tecumseh replacement coil question

Hello,

Bought a coil STENS P/N 460-063. The Spark plug wire is not installed.. Looking in the hole there is a point. Do I just stick plug wire into hole and hope the point pierces the copper core? Not sure I trust that type of connection? Thanks

The point that you see... is it threaded? A lot of times the coil literally "screws" into the wire.

That's the way one of my Fairbanks Morse magnetos on my Wisconsin AB was set-up. The post was threaded, and I pushed the wire in as I twisted. Made a surprisingly good connection.

thanks,

today the push-in-place connection is somewhat common. It has been for a number of years as well.

The Tecumseh coil from STENS has a threaded contact for the spark plug wire. You screw the plug wire into the coil. The stock Tecumseh coil had a pin the the plug wire pushed on to. Because this was a push on terminal, the wire was also glued into the coil.
