Brillman J4 Magneto Coil

Postby Cub-Bud » Sun Sep 12, 2021 9:11 pm

I purchased a magneto coil for a J4 Magneto from Brillman and installed it. Seems to be too tall as the coil cap will not fit now. Anyone else had this problem :?:

I'm going to make sure I haven't done something wrong, first. It can't go but one way. :shock:

Could it be possible that an H4 coil was boxed in a J4 package. I think they are slightly larger.

H4 uses a round bar for attachment. J4 is rectangular.

The one wire from coil isn't setting pinched under the coil is it?

Do not know if it will help, but when I replaced the J4 magneto coil (from Brilman) on my 48 Cub, I took some photos of the old coil assembly, before removal. The new coil assembly went back together without any issues. Maybe you will see something that helps.

Thanks Rick, I only remembered that they are slightly larger diameter. I don’t mess with them much so didn’t remember the round bar through the middle. Thanks for setting the record straight. I learned something in the process.
