Yes, I know EXACTLY how those things go.  ;-p

I have several Mark 10s that I need to test, once I clear out my work queue 
that has been neglected due to other problems over this winter. There's a 
significant amount of setup time required to do this on my dining room table, 
but if you wanted to send me your Mark 10, and a 6 V coil, because I don't 
have one, I could do yours at the same time. There would be a charge, but it 
wouldn't have to be much if I could do it at the same time as my others.

That's their big advantage, plus some advantage in starting under harsh 
circumstances, something most of us seldom do with our old cars these
