Mag coil ring

Post by Dennis_Brown » Sun Sep 29, 2019 9:54 pm

Do not know if I still have it but I had a mag coil ring that was a couple inches smaller diameter than one for a T. Bolt holes were different also. Any ideas ?
I may still have it packed away somewhere in a box.

What year/model Fordson? Some Fordson tractors use a mag coil ring that looks identical to T coil ring, except that it is mounted to the Fordson engine block by three evenly spaced bolts instead of four. Knew a guy years ago that thought he had gotten a great coil ring for his T until he went to install it. :o I also had one myself without any coils on it, so I got to compare it with a T coil ring. Had the flywheel too. Slightly different but almost the same as a T flywheel. I think I gave them to a tractor guy many years ago.

How about a picture of the mystery coil ring? Could possibly be a '09? They are slightly smaller, but not much.

You can go to the Fordson tractor site and get an idea what a Fordson mag ring looks like. I had one and sold mine to them. They were glad to get it for a core rebuild.

Way e... “Slightly different but almost the same as a T Flywheel”..?? A Fordson Model F Flywheel is 3”-4” thick and will weigh well over 100 lbs.
One of the biggest problems with today’s youth is they’ve never known the fear of hearing leather being rapidly pulled through seven Wrangler belt loops.
