Posting your chassis brand and year would be a big help .

Looks like an early Ford electronic ignition box.

Thanks for posting that info.
I'm saying , ignition control box, you could disconnect and try starting the engine to be sure.

If you open the " Quick Links " drop box , under your , welcome message, and go to " Edit Signature " you can type in your coach info, then click save at the bottom of that page , it will automatically appear under your posts ( as mine does below this one ) and you won't have to put it in every time.

Harbor Freight sells a cheap but nice air horn with a little compressor for it... about $30 I remember. Maybe you could buy that and use the compressor.

That is a ford ignition control module, they used that style on a lot of ford trucks, vans, and broncos for many years.

WELLS on the cover indicates it came out of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin where the factory is or was located.

I haven't been near where the factory was located in years so I just don't know if they have survived.

Wells is the company that makes the module, they are still in business today. They are owned by Standard Ignition now. I believe the Borg Warner Ignition part number is CBE7.
