When I first bought Maude (1940 9N) the seller knocked the price down because she wouldn't start. I ran a wire from the coil to the battery held it on with wooden clothes pins and drove her home. Later totally rewired everything 12 volt negative ground. I got lucky 20 years later and no problems. Knock on wood.
