About the TipTop Timers E-Timer
The TipTop Timers E-Timer is an Electronic Timer for the Model T housed in an Anderson style timer case. It uses the original coils and original wiring without any modifications to the car or wiring. The coils still vibrate and buzz providing the sound and appearance of stock operation but performance is remarkably improved. Ignition timing is manually controlled by the spark lever as usual or can be set to provide Automatic Timing Advance (ATA) that frees the driver from the burden of continually adjusting the spark lever for optimal power as engine speed changes. Enjoy smooth, efficient engine performance regardless of engine RPM in ATA mode without touching the spark lever. Best of all, the E-Timer uses modern non-contact Hall Sensors to precisely detect CAM position so it is completely maintenance free. Imagine never having to clean, lubricate or replace the timer ever again. Never replace or adjust coil points ever again either.
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 HCCT coil points alignment, points 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 beta tested and has logged well over 50,000 cumulative miles in 7 countries. User performance feed back has been outstanding with 99% customer satisfaction.
