How do you know the Remax coil is the same as a "Chinese" Lucas? All I see is the outer casing is similar, which tells you nothing about what is inside.
I don't but call it "I have experienced and seen enough the last 20 years". I can only see these are the same coils from the same manufacturer what are currently sold under different brands. There are many types of "brandless" gold coils sold as Lucas sports coils and it depends when these were sold. Every few years these differ a bit and there are around 4 different casings and finishings at the moment and that tells me enough. Cheap production to make money of the classic car market demand. The Bosch casing and finish is already 50 years the same. Made in the far west now but in a proper Bosch factory. Looking at the Remax pics there are different casings also for the same products.
When a recommended supplier doesn't put their names on their products it isn't their product or a manufacturer.
The name Remax is used again i think because everybody whines the last few years about the green Lucas boxes are te ones not to have and voilá, a "new" brand is there to have. But why don't have your your own coil on your own documents but photoshopped labels over another decal? Why do you need to compare with others to show you are the best? Where are the company details below the forms? What is Remax?????? I think it's a box folding and decal sticking company. The contact points and condensers in their Remax boxes are exactly the same as the ones in Lucas boxes, Intermotor boxes or whatever now is for sale. Even their distributor rotors are the ones with the big rivet in the already cracked plastic.... The next few years they can make money as "the alternative to have" and when that falls apart, a new decal is designed. This is how it works.
My daily job the last 17 years minus 2 was to solve mechanical, electrical and running problems at classics and the last 5 years mainly electrical and running problems. Repairing cars that have already seen 6 workshops or being brought by workshops trying to solve.
A lot of problems nowaday's are caused by the new classic car parts. Three weeks ago I had an MGB and the owner had a new ignition switch for it in a Lucas box. Showing his new comparing with his old he was convinced to use the old. These new "genuine" Lucas switches don't "click" anymore. The rivets on the back for the contacts are just a pop rivet type wobbly thin thing and not a solid brass pin pressed. No Lucas on it and the same as all the others sold as 'Lucas type". Allmost all new parts are made and sold this way, not only for the British classics.
I only use NOS parts and if not available I find an alternative that does the job. No "far east" reproduction parts are fitted and if the customer insists he has to go find someone else who does but I don't. My main goal is to use the best available the last 20 years. I depend on classic cars all my life as daily transport and have tried and seen all. My customers do want also and if they ask cheap reproduction they can leave. I tested a lot, also coils on a ignition tester to find out a proper Lucas coil is a good coil, a Bosch the best under load and the nameless coils with whatever decal on cannot be named coils... I had 10 "classic oils" tested years ago in a lab to determine what was the best and also had the correct amount of ZDDP because at the company I worked for at that time used more than 5000liters a year for classics and needed the best. That is how I work and advice. Not believing but seeing or experiencing.
The only thing you can do is reley on my experience and my inbuild low quality detector or don't do anything with it and go your own way. I try to advice here and on Facebook and you can do with it as you like and I can only say that my experience is not build on working on my Dolomite and the neighbours Escort but on a period of 10 years seeing 300 classics a year of any make and any era and trying to solve any kind of problems on these and now for around 5 years mostly having the "problems people can't solve" in the workshop to work on what still makes me learn and see new things every day.
