Or you can buy a coil with the resister built in. Or if you are that worried about it looking original, put it back to 6 volts like it was originally.

With respect and at risk. There were a few coils (aftermarket) that had a (lightbulb) resistor built into the housing, and some 6v Ford car coils in the early 1950s had a resistor in a curved housing on the top of the coil. all available coils are just wound to use 12 volts. (more turns on the primary winding) None use an actual resistor inside. The confusion comes from printed words on coils (No External Resistor Required) that implies that there is an internal resistor, but there is not. Jim

I been tellin em that for years Jim, but I cant get it to soak in lol

NOTE there was at least one car or coil manufacturer in the late twenties I believe THAT ACTUALLY HAD A "RESISTOR" in the coils can botton in a seperated ring compartment, wish I could find that picture.....BUT NO SUCH TRACTOR COILS OR CAR COILS EVEN THAT IVE SEEN IN OVER 50 YEARS OF WORKING ON THE CRITTERS
