DescriptionTop down view of a Barnes engine at the Wooden Boat Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador. Located on the back of the engine bed on the right hand side is a battery pack and on the left hand side is a battery coil. These two components would work together to provide the energy needed to produce a spark. Usually these were kept in a seperate box, known as the battery box, to keep water out away from these parts. Wires, from the coil, would be placed on the engine, one at the top, near the point of ignition, and the other near the bottom, which acted as a ground.
