I think one article you might have read about was by a guy who wound his own pick-up / trigger coil on a thread bobbin and bought a Plymouth minivan electronics module....... and that article was partly what inspired Dale Colvert to create, test and market his retro-fit kits.
A word of caution regards the Model-T coil vs. modern coils, those are designed to create the spark at the time of electrical contact, whereas a modern coil makes it's spark after the contact is broken, which all results in a timing issue to contend with.
Puts me in mind of the snap-mags, gear and belt driven.
