He Solved Coil Burn-Out Problem On Ford 9N TractorCharles M. Hoyt, Medina, Ohio: "Several acquaintenances of mine have had problems with the front-mounted coil burning out on their Ford 9N tractors, probably as the result of switching the tractor's charging system from 6 to 12 volts. I had the same problem on my 9N tractor. A new coil is quite expensive. To save money I gutted the old coil and epoxied a coil tower to it which I got from the distributor cap off a junked car .
"The tractor's distributor is mounted up front next to the fan blades where you can hardly see it or get to it, and the coil is clamped on top of it. I removed the guts from the burned-out coil, then epoxied the car coil to the housing so that it sticks out to the side. Then I ran a wire from the center of the car coil to the top of the distributor. The car coil mounts on the side of the engine where I can see it and where it's easy to work on."
