Re: 1948 Ford 12 volt coil issues

Need to take the measurement at the distributor. You want a coil with about 3.5 ohms resistance.

Re: Timing an 8ba

A hotter cam is always going to idle better with more advance. As long as you're not getting any detonation, you're good to go. It would be nice if someone could come up with a crab style distributor...
