Default Re: Replacement Ignition Coil

duke36, thanks, I found it.

I've been testing a bunch of old 6 volt coils and also some 12 volt ones that call for a ballast resistor, but not using one and testing them using 6 volts.
They all put out around 25KV, some as high as 28 KV.
For testing I use an old GM distributor clamped in a vise and turn the shaft by hand to open and close the points.

I've been using a tester similar to this one:
