John, Does it have a Part # on it, just want to be sure it is the one I need. Yes, I am interested. Is this just the Coil or is it on the backing plate. I assume that from, your previous post, it does produce a SPARK? Are the Laminations with the Coil? Yes I would like to see Photo's. Put your courser over my name and click "Start a conversation" to send me Photo's and email.I believe I have an N.O.S. coil (with laminated core). I have tested it for spark but not resistance on the secondary. I would sell it and ship it to Kansas for $100 total. The original insulation on the wire to the points was falling apart so I replaced that with something much better and it looks good too. I can take some photos of it if you want and in the meantime, I will figure out how to message you through this newer version of Smokstak. If you're not interested, I won't bother.
Be advised, I'm not online everyday. Its a great original F- series coil, but it is just sitting around with other items to sell or trade and now that I've "gone public", I won't limit my sale of it just to you. John (Kid Dynamo)
Batrider makes a very good point. IMO any original coil is a risk. I would not pay any more than $30 for one. The problem does not come from use it comes from moisture, and a coil sitting on a shelf for 80 years may have the same problem as one in an engine.My coil measured infinite resistance but still worked by the spark jumping that gap internally. That's the one I rewound. Resistance should still be checked (ideally). Also, A NOS coil may have the same corrosion / potential failure issues as one that has been in a machine. Wire insulation and the insulating sheets between layers are made of much better materials these days. I used Nomex between layers. Stock coil was waxed paper.
I think you'll be happy if you purchase one of the coils rewired with modern materials recommended on here. I am withdrawing my offer and keeping my coil for local use. Good luck!Thanks batrider for the Info. I still need a Coil. Yes, the materials are much better than 100 yrs. ago.
