Default John Deere Model E Sparkplug engine

Howdy,

I picked up a JD Model E that has been converted over to a sparkplug Ignition. They must have bought three casting made out of aluminum to do this. Does anyone have any pic or dimensions on what the box that held the battery and coil would have looked like? Does the bolt under the spark plug go to the box? And did they originaly come with a model T coil, or something else? This is my first JD, so I really do not know much about them. I will problem get in trouble with the family, Red or Orange, but no Green and Yellow.


Thanks

Chris

Dick,

Thanks for the pics, that will help a lot.

I assume this is a conversion because the casting the spark plug goes in, the back cover, and the place were you set the timing at are all made of aluminum. I would assume the original would have been cast iron. They are nice repruductions, well done, I just find the material they are made out of odd.

But then again, I know nothing about JD.

Thanks again for the great pics.

Chris

Bob Campbell at Eagle Grove, Iowa had new boxes at one time. He likely still does.
