The rebuilt/built 59L engine with strong compression in the '40 was too much for the 6 volt system, so I had to change over to 12 volts.

Re: Variable coil ballast resistor

So if the coil has 1.5 ohms resistance, and ballast resistor 2 ohms what would the current in amps be in 12V circuit ? How do I measure the voltage to see if I have 3.8 to 4.2 volts at the points ?...

Re: Variable coil ballast resistor

I do have multi-m, and I get aprox. 3-0hms at the lowest post where it is market 3 volts.
I have other ballast resistors of which I will post a photo later. They seem to all be around 3 ohms.
