Cant just take the coil out?

Tubs, that may have been an option. Suppose I could have cut off
the plug wires, did some un-soldering, etc., but
it's no longer necessary. The harmonic balancer, pipe wrench to hold the hub,
and a 3/4" socket on my breaker bar popped that hub right off!
I had to make 1/4" x 28 tpi bolt on the lathe, as I only could find two
long enough. Found out that galvanized bolts don't cut nice threads
even after you remove the galvanized coating. Also, a million of
light cuts were required on that 1/4" bolt due to the flex. It looked
like crap, but it worked.
Also, now that I have the mag plate off, I found some numbers on the bottom.
Does anyone know what 4 cylinder motor it was from?
Photos later today.
