JANUARY 2019 THE SHOP 41 TOTAL RE-COIL mark.totalre-coil@comcast.net Mark Fleischhacker of Minnetonka, Min- nesota restores magneto field coils for Model T Fords and Fordson tractors. The ignition systems used in both Ford-built machines were identical, consisting of a low-tension flywheel magneto and high- tension coils. Total Re-Coil specializes in field coil rewinding. Fleischhacker has been a Model T hobbyist for years and his retirement business evolved out of his passion for those special vehicles. He also knows all of the different design variations and which coils were used in specific years, and his rewound field coils can make a Model T run much better. RUSS FURSTNOW ANTIQUE SPEEDOMETER 1stnow@msn.com Russ Furstnow of Flagstaff, Arizona is a true artist when it comes to restoring antique car speedometers. He also supplies speedometers and parts for them. Looking at his swap meet display made people think they were in a jewelry store checking out fine watches. About half the units on display were shiny brass speedom- eters for early Brass Era cars. The rest were done with a shiny black finish. Brands included: Johns-Manville, Stewart, Stewart-Warner and Joseph W. Jones. (I thought the prices were very rea- sonable compared to an Indian motorcycle speedometer I need!) Furstnow also sells parts and setups. R.V. ANDERSON rvmodelt@netsync.net R.V. Anderson of Kennedy, New York manufactures more than 200 parts for Model T Fords, and is well known for his knowledge of Model T engineering. His specialties include field coil rewinding, 1909-'27 ignition coils, 1903-up vibrator coils, top straps and hard- ware, and coils and parts for all brands of cars that qualify as horseless carriages. He is an expert in early electrical systems, and rebuilds, repairs and reproduces early electrical coils. Anderson says all of his rebuilding work is fully guaranteed. The annual Chickasha Prewar Swap Meet in Oklahoma is a great place to locate hard-to- find parts and services for pre-World War II vehicles.
