Default 46-48 style rebuildable coil

Sorry, I know I'm supposed to list this on the Swap Meet, which I am, but posting it here as well for more coverage. I need a rebuildable 1946-1948 style ignition coil to keep as a spare. It will be on Apatchy, a driver, so does not need to be show quality. Just decent looking, and rebuildable. Thanks. Let me know quickly 'cause I'm getting old FAST. LOL

You have options already, but Lawson I have one (think both brown and black coils). Send a pm and I'll double check. Just pay the ride, I'll ship it straight to skip.

Lawson, I was thinking about sending you a coil and a $50.00 bill so you could buy a 5th on the 6th to celebrate next years 4th of July, but the other guys beat me to the punch.

Yeah John, I appreciate the offer, but I appreciate the humor more. Yeah, I've got it covered now.


The generosity of the Fordbarn Folks is fantastic.

Jim. That's Fantastic. I'll be on the look out. I will call you in a day or two and pick your brain on whether or not there's a way you can test a coil to determine if it is going to break down when it gets hot. Good U-Tube video on checking out coils, but no mention about how to test for one that is liable to break down when it gets hot.

Actually there is a very good test. Send the coil to Skip for a rebuild and forget it !!!
