I'm looking for information on the Atwater Kent ignition coils pictured below.
I have 3 units total, two are the same model/type, one is simply in better
condition than the other and has all the parts.
Atwater Kent made popular ignition systems for early Ford and other automobiles as well as for 2 cylinder boat motors.
One unit has a simple
"on/off" switch on the top right, it swings to make contact. On the left is a
button marked "start". I've heard that this causes a spark at the plug and if
the engine is set right, simply hitting that button and releasing can start
I am very much interested in obtaining more information such as:
