Default Re: Old problem revisited, rough running 8BA

The voltage at the (+) terminal on the coil should be 12v or whatever the battery is at; the voltage at the (-) terminal would be dropped by the coil resistance if the points are closed.

You said "Have also added engine to ground strap." The negative battery cable should be going to the block or trans bellhousing. Is that how you have it?
