External Coil Update

Recommended Posts

gtwygreg
Update on my 3416H! I took my camera phone and took pictures of my new external coil setup. I'm really happy I went to an external coil and would highly recommend it. I looked at several of the conversions and figured out what would work best for me. The coil is a automotive type with external resistor. An internal resistor would be easier, but they were sold out of those and I wanted it running now. I found a chrome bracket and mounted the coil on the head. It was tight but it clears everything. I made a custom steel core wire for the spark plug and put in an automotive type condenser.

Here's the final product, The tractor actually moved under it's own power and quite well I might add. I did find time to upgrade the seat as well. After I finish the mechanical it's paint time!!!

Greg, I like the compactness of your setup and thought I had seen coils mounted on the head before but I could not find any documentation. From other posts I read I was under the impression that the coil needed to remain near vertical, so I mounted it low on a plate on the front gear cover. I just completed the conversion yesterday and am quite pleased the tractor is running great.


Fortunately I will never need a front PTO.

Phil, your instillation looks pretty good as well. My rig came with a snowblower, so I couldn't mount it up front because I need the PTO. The coil I got was for a Chrysler and I know I've seen plenty of Chrysler coils mounted sideways, so I didn't worry about it. If it burns out it's only a 5 minute job to change it and it only cost $8, so no big loss

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
