Helping a friend to get his Ford 2000 tractor running. I tuned it up. I put all new parts, plugs, wires, points, condenser, cap, rotor, coil. Checked timing & mechanical advance, rebuilt the carb, and cleaned air filter. After a month he complained of hard starting especially when warm. I noticed the coil had oil in the tower where the coil wire is inserted( the old one was also leaking oil and the wire had swelled from the oil). After putting on a new coil it starts like new. Is the coil overheating somehow? The coil I replaced said on it"s side "for internal resistor" also "made in China". Is there a resistor or should there be a resistor in the High tension circuit? Thanks for the thoughts,original 6 volt system/generator. Kurt

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeYes this is a 1962 Ford 2000 4 cyl farm tractor, as I stated it is 6V(positive ground).The latest coil I installed is a 6v round Car Quest 26207 coil. The instructions state that this coil is for "use without a external resistor". The last coil was also for "use without a external resistor", but was a Tisco brand. I am knowledgeable about Ballast resistors in 12 v systems but never hear of a resistor in 6v system. Just wondering if something is wrong that the coil only lasted 1 month and started leaking oil from the top. Most likely Chinese junk. Thanks Kurly
