Where might I be able to find a 1940 evinrude elto handitwin 3hp ignition coil?
Its a 2 spark coil and the plug wires are soldiered directly to the coil. Engine model number is 4357
check the chris craft challenger thread down from this one, theres some pertinent coil info for you there.

Can you post a picture of the coil?
Have you measured the resistance across the secondary ?
If it is really bad you can place an ad in the classified section. Elto Handitwins were a pretty common motor.
There are also other replacement alternatives
Plug wires are gone and I can see the wiring inside the coil is broken
Might be able to substitute some OMC
universal magneto style coils. Here is
how I put some in an early Johnson.
If they aren’t to big and you can get them
positioned so you can attach the plug
wires they will work. It is important to
have the coils facing the same direction.
Club Member Big Rich has the coils.
Here is an eBay link to his ad.
