John T, I read all your info on coils. So I had a little time this evening to go out to the tractor shed and look at the wiring again. Haven't had much time to work on it lately. When looking at the coil it wasn't stamped 6volts or 12 that I could see, very rusty and old looking (like me). I did see some wording that said,use with external resistor and there was a #27291 stamped on it. Since the tractor has 12volt system should i ask for a 6volt or 12volt coil to install on it? Thanks Larry

"I did see some wording that said, use with external resistor"

If it says that my best "guess" is it means just what it says i.e. it requires the resistor or else it will overheat....Id try that coil WITH the unshunted external ballast n see what happens.

"Since the tractor has 12 volt system should I ask for a 6 volt or 12 volt coil to install on it?"

You can EITHER use a 6 volt coil PLUS the external series voltage dropping (12 to 6) working ballast orrrrrrrrrrrr a 12 volt coil with no ballast required. However to utilize the ballast by pass system for improved cold starting you would need the 6 volt coil plus a good ballast. Id be tempted to just use a new full 12 volt coil (NO ballast required) and do away with any ballast or by pass circuit headaches...
