|it's better? proove it. So far.. I see that it costs more... and doesn't do anything else . |
post the schematics to both.
I've seen way too many instances of relabeled consumer electronics parts that one is a premium due to a lable..
we need to see wire diameter of the primary and secondary, and insulation type.
# of turns in the primary and secondary.
dc resistance or impeadance value of the primary and secondary. , inductance if available.
case material, and thickness
thermal disipation characteristics.
post and terminal materials.
I've been sent the schematic fromthe ic14sb...
there simply hasn't been much if any major advances in ignition coil technology for these old can style coils..... or for that fact.. anything dealing with a breaker style kettering ignition in the last 40 years...
Spark gap is going to be the major contributing factor to KV potential.. and dealing with gaps in the .024-.026 range... we aren't anywhere near taxing the capability of this make of coil secondary..
practical testing thru use on many tractors shows us the rmary is stable and robust..
what kind of tangible electro/mechanical gain is there in the other 33% cost? longevity?
If one oil is 20 and one is 30.. where are we going to see a practical gain? I've personally got ic14sb coils over 10ys old. thus their lifespan is at least 10ys.
would that 10$ not be better served in an interest bearing account o that 20? years down the line when the cheap POS ic14sb coil fails you can buy another and get another 20ys out of it? vs? how many onthe IC14? will it live 30 years? Is that going to be a practical financial gain?
just saying.. I'm looking for the practical / tangible gan that 10$ buys me. Having an engineering degree, I'm usually skeptical about claims of one component being better than another when both provide the same outcome.. and the cheap one is going strong..:)
not being argumentative here.. I'm actually asking for that info.
if the data bears out something tangible.. then we will know.
better potting? better thermal properties? thicker case? more corrosion restant terminals? heavier wire gauge? better internal insulatoion? those would all be tangible measureable improvements that could be taken into consideration .
I guess I'm saying that if a 20g shotgun kils a bird dead, dead, is there much gain shooting it with a 12g and it being dead, dead, dead ? :) ( no return on extra investment if the cheap one does it all and lasts i guess is my point.. )
any data from napa to backup the claim?
