    Just found a renewed ad for a wierd moon coil on samba. I don’t think its the right one because the bottom is not quite right, and the part number is te6/1…we’re looking for tl6/1 The “e” must designate be the 3rd connection on top?

    Its got a strange 3rd prong on top. Magneto kill?

    tk6/3 is the fatter high output Porsche type coil….which I also found a moon version of on samba. This would go on a gmund coupe or some other German car of  the late 40’s?

    Ricardo in Argentina make a repo star that uses modern internals….that is probably way to go for reliability.

    I disassembled the 47 engine further to find the exact cause of the oil leak. The oil cooler seals looked good. So I cleaned and leak tested the cooler. Found a crack at the top. Maybe I can get lucky and solder it? I have a era correct used oil cooler on the way.

    Pat delivered this 70 ghia today after a general “fix everything” full machine tune up job. Crazy nice original car with just as nice resto & details galore. For sale $60K rexshaw@msn.com    

     

    I’m guessing you accidentally hit that 0 beside the 6? $6K right?

    It cost twice that to build originally. The owner is OVER the vw scene. Super nice solid car detailed to the max. It is 60k nice…but hard to justify for a 1970 model year.

    He spent 120K to build a 1970 Ghia?

     

    I just bought this one for 10% of his asking price! (So $6K still gets great cars over here Rusty!) Very original 70. I’ll post more as I make more changes. I added dropped spindles, Porsche drums and rotors, wheels and tires, and a new muffler today. I dropped the back by going up 6 inner clicks and down 6 outer clicks. I was looking for about 1.3 inches. I am waiting on a sand tweed interior kit from Sewfine now. This will most likely stay stock and be a quiet heated cruiser!

    Spent yesterday testing and fixing various inop electrical.

    The horn needed disassemble cleaned and adjusted, the horn brush had paint isolating the electrical connection, the horn button is missing a spring to ground out the contact plate to the shaft, The interior light had the wrong bulb, The dash pod had bad connection, and dirty contacts for the wipers/light.

    I also got a date code of “A” from the seller of the moon coil mentioned earlier. That would make it a 1945. Probably the most correct coil available at this time. I bought it.

    Typical old stored resto…  I’m glad KB had it sent here first.. Now when it gets home.. it will just be smiles and miles.  This is one NICE 47… I can’t see where any work has been done to this car.. Looks like OG heater channels to me.. 😀  😉  😎  😛  🙂
