Subject: FTE Pre61 - Coil too hot ?

My '51 F3 was running fine...then it just quit as I was driving on the road. Pop the clutch and it would run a little more. I
limped it home that way. Checking, the coil was HOT. Should it be?

I'm a little slow on this one but in 1921, Ethyl Corporation began its
business with the antiknock compound tetraethyl lead. The higher (100+)
octanes were formulated for fighter aircraft during WWII and became
known
as 'Avgas'. You can still buy 100 octane gas at the Terrible Herbst
stations in Nevada. It's sold as 'racing gasoline' $3.40/gallon.

I was able to get the sound when I tried it. Your flatty sound a little
healthier than mine!
