got the aftermarket (made in Taiwan) coil, pn 290880.

have a parts motor so I took the magnamatic from that to set up the new part on. since the coil has been on the armature for over 60 years, it would not slide off. I cut it off and polished the armature.

but it doesn't slide all the way thru the new coil, barely halfway thru.

should I use some kind of lubricant on it? maybe a light oil or grease? silicon spray?

right now the armature is in the freezer shrinking a bit (I told 'she who must be obey'd' because surprising her with these sort of things can cause problems-never use her oven and oven-off to clean pistons, unless she is going to be out of town for a few days)

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
