Ignition Coil

Post  Maurice on Wed Aug 15, 2012 6:01 pm

Due to a lack of sparks I have purchased a new coil for my 8E magneto. The original coil has a small indent and the HT lead makes contact with it via a spring loaded contact. The new coil has a tiny brass contact with a small hole in it. Physical dimension are identical. Have I bought the wrong part (although it does claim to be for an 8E) or is there some way of connecting the HT lead that I am unaware of. Here follows, I hope, three photographs. Any advice much appreciated.

Hi Maurice. I brought one of these replacements a while ago and ended up using another original one as i found it easier. I think the idea is to bend the tab over flush with the casing and the pickup fits into/against the hole in the tab. It might require a slight modification of the pickup but should work. Villiers services sell an original product so if all else fails try one of thiers.

The intention with the tab with a hole in is to solder the wire from the HT lead to it ,making a permanent connection and to do away with the connector that relies on a screw and spring (as this tends to corrode and add resistance) you can either drill out the original connector (althpough it has a tendency to shatter) or make up a nylon or plastic bung for the hole and seal with silicon,JH

Thank you for the comments. Not had time to sort yet.
JH knowledge never ceases to amaze me. Absolutely right the HT lead will not pass through the hole when the sprung contact is removed!
