The E-Timer is an Electronic Ignition for the Model T housed in a high quality reproduction Ford timer housing. 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, replacement 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 operating only on 6V, 8V, 10V or 12V battery. The E-Timer monitors engine RPM and adjusts spark advance automatically. This 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 distributor and magneto operation. Enjoy smooth, efficient engine performance regardless of engine RPM in Automatic Timing Advance mode without ever touching the spark lever. The E-Timer can be set for Manual Timing mode if desired. The spark lever must be manually adjusted operating on battery as usual in Manual Timing Mode.
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 earned proven reliability over the past 12 years with over 100,000 cumulative miles in 8 countries. User performance feed back has been outstanding with near 100% customer satisfaction.
