Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

The wattage is volts x amps. 570 amps at 8v is more than 600 (+) at 6v.
I'm not supporting using an 8v battery, just my opinion that an 8v battery does give more cranking power.

Re: What do you think?

Re: difference in 6 volt and 12 volt ignition ?

I sounds like you are on the right track. The Bosch "blue coil" #00012 made in brazil is listed to have 3.4 ohms resistance. You could use any coil with 1.5 primary resistance with a 1.8 ohm ballast...

Re: Voltage to points

I don't mind swapping to the Ford coil, but the resistance measures the same. Do you have the resistance value of the wire feeding your Falcon coil?
