  • 12 volt system coil follow up to thread 11-7-17

    We have a Standard 12 volt internal resistor UC15T coil for another project. It reads 4.6 ohms across the terminals with 2.6 amps to the points. If an alternator puts out approx. 14 volts , the current to the points is approx 3 amps.
    Just want to follow up that this is OK (with stock or modern V8 style points) if we use on a Model A ?

    That should be fine, and the amps while the engine is running will be much less.

      Crab electronic coil ohms.
      by pooch
      Helped a mate with an electronic Efire crab dizzy today.

      Would not go, after a couple of hours we found 2 things wrong.

      Firstly the magnet drum had to be pushed right home to work and we could not get a 3 ohm coil to run.

      Got it running on a 1.2 ohm coil.

      Whether the 3 ohm one is dead or electronics don't like 3 ohms.

      Condensor at Firewall/coil
      by plyfor
      Is there any issue with mounting the condenser up at the coil? 12 volt system with 16ga wire, internal resistor coil, etc. .

      Attached is a dwg. from the net that may be helpful. It also shows how to locate a condenser away from the dizzy and up at the firewall. If an oil filled coil is used, the diagram has the terminals facing up requiring a longer coil to dizzy wire....

      Did the guy sell me the wrong coil?
      by PepeLoco
      Was at O'Reilly's, asked for a 12 volt coil with internal resistor and the guy asks on what vehicle? I tell him a '31 Model A, he tells me that I really need the Accel 8140 because he has worked on old cars his whole life; best they got. $40 later I look it up and see that there is no internal resistor and previous threads mention UC15T; whatever that is.
      I really don't want to run an external...

      coils (12 volt) primary tests
      by plyfor
      Updating from another post, used a very accurate volt / ohm meter to compare primary readings on 3 internal resistance coils. The results were that 1 used original German made Bosch solid filled (probably tar substance, not epoxy) measured in at 3.2 ohms ,a new Standard UCT15 (foreign made) measured 4.2, and new old stock Lucas (UK made) measured 4.6 . The Bosch went on our car and could be mounted...

      Coil Wiring
      by Fixitphil
      When converting my A to 12 volt I've heard that you have to switch the two primary wires on the coil. Which small primary wire goes to positive and which to negative side of coil?

      Coil Decision
      by Cape Codder
      I am looking to purchase a coil other than OIL filled. I see that Summit Racing sells Per Tronix Ignition Coils which are EPOXY filled and Primary Resistance is 1.5 ohms with maximum voltage rated at 40,000 volts.

      MY QUESTIONS:
      How does this coil match up to the original coll in that it is filled with EPOXY and voltage rated at 40,000 volts?
      What is the original coils maximum...

      Ignition Configuration
      by Rumbleseater
      It's hard being a Model A newby! The former owner of my '29 Coupe appears to have switched to a more modern distributor cap and wires. I also noticed there is no condenser in the distributor main body. But he did install a new coil, and what appears to be a condenser mounted and connected to the coil. To make a long story short, he had forgotten the car had a 6 volt alternator, and was not converted...

      coil problem
      by MIKE DERUITER
      HELLO I HAD A PROBLEM WITH A ELECTRONIC DISTRIBUTER SO CHANGED IT TO A POINT DISTRIBUTER . EVERYTHING WAS FINE FOR A WHILE THEN THE MAIN FUSE BLEW OUT AND THE COIL BURNED OUT . I PUT A GENERIC COIL IN IT AND IT WAS GOOD FOR ABOUT A 100 MILES AND IT BURNED OUT ALSO. IS TERE SUPOSE TO BE A RESISTER IN IT?. I AM USING A 12 VOLT SYSTEM WITH A ALTERNATER. THANKS

      Distributor Condenser Question
      by KansasRick
      Is a distributor condenser voltage specific? Are there 6 Volt Condensers and 12 Volt Condensers? While browsing the parts catalogs I don’t seem to see any specification differences. Am I overlooking something real obvious? I feel like I ought to know this but I never came it across this before. What do you think?
