           About the E-Timer

     The E-Timer is an Electronic Timer for the Model T housed in a high quality reproduction Ford timer case.  It uses the original coils and original wiring without any modifications to the car or wiring.  The coil points are bypassed with tiny fuse jumpers so you don't have to bother with coil point adjustment or maintenance for the coils to function properly.  The E-Timer charges and fires the coils precisely synchronized with piston position using maintenance free, non-contact hall sensors to sense CAM position.  The coils still vibrate and buzz providing the sound and appearance of stock operation but engine performance is remarkably improved.  

     The E-Timer eliminates all magneto variables by only operating on 6V,8V, 10V or 12V battery.  The E-Timer monitors engine RPM and provides Automatic Timing Advance (ATA) that frees the driver from the burden of continually adjusting the spark lever for optimal power as engine speed changes while operating on battery.  Engine performance is comparable to magneto operation.     Enjoy smooth, efficient engine performance regardless of engine RPM in ATA mode without ever touching the spark lever.  The E-Timer can be set for Manual Timing mode where the spark lever must be manually adjusted operating on battery as usual if preferred.

     The E-Timer was specifically designed to eliminate the hassle associated with getting and keeping the original Model T ignition system functioning properly without sacrificing the appearance of originality as distributor conversions do.  It eliminates the special knowledge, skills and expensive tools needed to install, align and maintain the original ignition system.  For example, the E-Timer eliminates the highly critical coil point adjustment, point wear, periodic adjustment, points replacement and condenser replacement yet guarantees a hot spark precisely timed every time without concern of double sparking.  Simple battery operation eliminates all magneto variables and ignition timing restrictions.  There are no timer contacts to adjust, wear out or replace and no more messy timer maintenance every 500 miles.
     The E-Timer has been thoroughly tested and has logged well over 100,000 cumulative miles in 7 countries.  Reliability and User performance feed back has been outstanding with 99.7% customer satisfaction.  E-mail us your E-Timer performance feedback along with a photo and we may add it to the growing list of E-Timer user testimonials.  Send performance feedback and photo to:

                 About the I-Timer

     The I-Timer is a direct replacement for the stock Model T mechanical timer that provides precise coil activation and never needs maintenance.  Start on battery and run on Magneto or battery as usual.  The I-Timer is immune to timing cover misalignment and provides precise and uniform ignition coil activation without contact wiper bounce, skip, wear, arcing or other flaws associated with mechanical timers and does not require periodic maintenance or replacement. 

      Simply replace your mechanical timer with the I-Timer and enjoy smooth, optimal engine performance at any engine speed with properly adjusted stock Model T coils.  Stock coils must have good windings, good points, good condenser/capacitor and the points Must be properly adjusted to achieve good engine performance.  We highly recommend the Electrically Cranked Coil Tester (ECCT) to adjust coil points for equal firing time.  Please visit:
for information about the ECCT and discounts for I-Timer owners.
