Default Re: Question about the ignition coil

What type of coil do you have ? There should be 6v to each terminal if the car is wired as original [which it sounds as though it is.]
There should be 6v at the open point arm and 0v when closed.
The coil should read 1.5 ohms and be either tar or epoxy filled. [ not oil]
The condenser/ capacitor could well be bad. Check for capacitance and continuity. [ I just had a no start condition and went thru 4 new 'short-proof' units before finding a good one.]
