bellamyr, Go to <A HREF="http://www.mtfca.org" TARGET=_blank>www.mtfca.org</A> or <A HREF="http://www.modelt.org" TARGET=_blank>www.modelt.org</A> for info they both have very active DF's. When you need to buy something try <A HREF="http://www.modeltford.com" TARGET=_blank>www.modeltford.com</A> for Lang's Old Car Parts or 1-800-TPARTS1 in Ma., Mac's Antique Auto Parts in NY 1-888-777-0948 or Snyder's Antique Auto Parts in Ohio 888-262-5712, Gaslight Auto Parts 937-652-2145 in Ohio. I have purchased from all 4, they are fine sources of parts. I like Don Lang the best. SalG <p>[This message has been edited by SalG (edited 05-08-2000).]

The <a href="http://www.mtfca.com/">Model T Ford Club of America</a> has an encyclopedia section. Within it there is a section on <a href="http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/C-D.htm#coils">coils</a>. It looks like your capacitor should be 0.40 to 0.45 mfd. ("mfd" is how they list it on the web site. I would assume that is millifarads which is huge. Perhaps they mean microfarads (µF) instead?)<P>If only there were sites that gave that type of answer for all cars smile.gif<p>[This message has been edited by TodFitch (edited 05-08-2000).]

I have used 0.47 microfarads @ 1600-VDC which I had acquired at a local electronic surplus supply. I look for cap's that have a sealed case and also like the higher voltage rating due to the hi CEMF voltage they encounter under this application.<BR>John W. Cina
