Early model coil: where for sale

#1

Post by Sidecar » Mon Aug 09, 2004 3:20 pm

The 2nd V-twin replica coil puked on me yesterday and left me stranded on the side of the road. Is there anyone out there that sells "Early Model" coils in 12 volt configuration ?? I don't want another v-twin coil from tedd's.

Is my only recourse the canister style coils ??

Kick-Start has 35K Volt Dyna-coils, along with a mount plate, that puts it in the original location. (616) 245-8991

I had checked nosparts on the net but they are replica coils. More than likely from the same manufacturer. I think I'm going to phone them and ask this morning..

I hadn't even thought about H-D coils. A high school buddy of mine run the parts counter at the local one. I'll call there also to see where they are made.

Called 2 H-D shops. H-D no longer supplies 12 volt early style coils, so I'm told.
NOSParts sells replica early coils.
Looks like I hafta use a "new" style AMERICAN MADE coil.

I give up on finding an original style coil made in USA.
I'm orderin' a classic round style "made in USA" coil and electronic ignition distributor.

I might be interested in sellin' an auto advance single points type distributor if anyone is looking for one.

I wonder why I have so many repop 12v coils in service successfully?

I can remember one (1) with a short life a few years back.

Cotton -

I just noticed your status on the forum. Some kinda serious promotion.

Doh!

I might have spelled it "Gawd", with a last initial "D",...maybe.

Can't I just be "spiritual advisor"??

Cotton,

Are these repops recent (last couple of years) or earlier models ?? I'm thinkin' maybe the switched manufacturers in the last couple of years ???

They all look alike to me.

I have never installed a chrome one,...of course.
