     The Electronically Cranked Coil Tester (ECCT) is the new standard in Model T coil testging.  Designed to test and adjust 1913-1927 Ford and K-W coils, the ECCT is a precision electronic instrument capable of aligning coil points with ease and precision unachievable with previous tools and methods.  The venerable HCCT used coil current as an indirect approximation of coil dwell time to fire because there was no accurate way to measure and display dwell time to fire back in the day.  That is not the case today!

     Engine performance depends on ignition timing not coil current so ECCT coil adjustment is done by accurately  measuring coil dwell time to fire of the first spark, not coil current.  Each coil can be precisely adjusted to firing with the same dwell time to minimize coil to coil (cylinder to cylinder) timing variation to achieve optimal engine performance.  There simply is no reason to settle for approximate current based adjusting techniques today like the HCCT to adjust Model T coils.

     The ECCT also tests the internal capacitor (Condenser) for proper value and leakage to ensure maximum point life and optimum coil performance.  The ECCT comes with AC power supply (100-240VAC, 50/60Hz), PC interface cable and Magneto test cable.  Weighing less than a pound, the ECCT is portable and easy to store unlike the 125lb. HCCT that it replaces and eliminates the risk of hernia an foot fracture too.

     The available Magneto test option enables the ECCT to test Magneto output is sufficient to properly operate coils.  The ECCT is a stand alone tool that does not require PC hook up.  However, test results can be displayed numerically and graphically on a PC or Laptop with the optional Advanced Features Software which makes coil adjusting easier.  The software also permits the user to change the coil firing rate from 375 to 5000 RPM and number of sparks fired from 2 to 250 to fine tune coils for the ultimate engine performance.  A written summary of each coil test result is provided along with suggestions on how to improve coil performance which is very helpful to beginners just learning how to adjust coil points.
