    Is it just me, or does anyone else love the way every little part of East German cars is stamped with a number and a date, and often a quality code?

    So far I've noticed just about everything on a Trabant seems to have DDR stamped on it somewhere.

    I noticed today my coils on my 1986 trabi are marked 1983 and 1977

    I wanted to read the "1" in the triangle but it just isn't obvious. Please show me this label next time I look under your bonnet. I wonder if that motor came from the same place that made the electric motors for that electric vehicles that the DDR dabbled in for a while.

    So you are running two 6 volt coils on a 12V electrical system?

    My father's 58 Ford tractor was converted from a 6V positive ground/generator to a 12V negative ground/AC Delco alternator. The coil is rather rusty so I can't tell if it's 6 or 12 volts but seems like the polarity on the coil was reversed s

    I think they're 12v coils. Ill see if theres any more info on them. Seems like 6v coils would provide a pretty weak spark on an otherwise 12v car.
