Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI gave you the answer......correct current level keeps them from "burning up"!

Maybe more hand holding is in order. You don't see a resistor in diagrams, so why not burning up? Well, just maybe someone used the correct coil, let us say with a 3 to 4 Ohm primary resistance, such that they obtain a safe/correct current level.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeTo the best of my knowledge, the ONLY car that ever came from the factory with a coil with a built in resistor was 1953-1955 Chrysler Imperial (AutoLite coil). Now, what virtually all posters are calling a "coil with built-in resistor" is in fact not! What they are is a coil wound with appropriate wire length & diameter & metal properties to yield those higher primary resistance measurements, such as 3 instead of 1.5 Ohms. I haven't a clue as to when the 3 & higher Ohm primary coil windings first appeared.

I said extra windings of wire inside the distributor...
