I'm in need of a eisemann magneto model 61 h coil any body out there have one
I am going to a large swap meet tomorrow I will keep an eye open. Might even
have an extra (somewhere)in basement. Probably many coils that will fit in space
available will work. If you can stand sticker shock on line vendors may
have them available. There are also several vendors who part out motors
61 H is for prewar Kiekhaefer made singles and some postwar KD3 and
probably WD3 72H is for twins.
Wico magneto FW 1329B used on KD3. Prewar singles could have either Wico
or Eisemann. Easiest solution is to use Eisemann Coil, but, other magneto
assemblies are correct and if all else fails you can adapt a coil...only
you and the devil will know.
Kiekhaefer was ill treated by a magneto manufacturer early on so it is likely
that use of more than one brand of magneto on each model served to keep the
magneto vendors on their toes and price competitive.
At the Suter Swap and Show meet today I found a vendor with a ton of NOS
Kiekhaefer stuff including Eisemann Coils. The price was a little more than
pocket change and neither he nor I were positive they were for 61 H.
Price was (in my opinion) reasonable. I told vendor how to link up with
this site and get with you to see if what he had you could use. Suggest
you exchange pictures. The coils were in Eisemann box and looked like for
a single cylinder ,but, just because it was with a ton of Kiekhaefer
parts does not follow the Eisemann coils were for 61 H as used by Kiekhaefer
as other companies used various versions of Eisemann magnetos.
Best I could do.
I snoop all the parts anyway so nothing out of my way.
