He said Three cylinder guys - they were all 12 volt.
Des, that tractor came from the factory with a resistor wire in the system. It is 3 layers of wire folded and taped together that goes from a bullet connector near the solenoid to the coil.
Someone has likely replaced that resistor wire with a regular wire. (they often get frayed and ugly looking)
We do not know whether you bought a coil that requires a resistor or bought a coil that does not require a resistor.
They sell both types.
Someone here can post the Napa part # for the one that does not need a rtesistor.
Buy that and you should be good to go.

i know they are all 12v. and in case you didn't know. it's a 6v coil on that 12v machine, plus a hand sized wad of that resistor wire.

I've seen people not aware of that and go buy a real 12v coil and then have a gasser that won't start, since it needs a 6v coil...
