It had a 6V coil with a ballast resistor mounted to the coil. Ugly. I don't know how it came from the factory. It's a later model 60 #6061643 so I assumed it was built with a 6V/ballast setup but I'm not sure.

Usually (like on the later 620) the ballast was mounted on the back of the steering pedestal, NOT on the coil HOWEVER in all my years of used tractor dealership I SAW ABOUT EVERYTHING LOL

NOTE; A reason for using the 6 volt coil on a 12 volt tractor was to improve cold weather starting, but the tractor had to have the ballast by pass circuit/system to make that work ya know !!!!!!!! The later 620 etc had such

Hope this helps, best wishes n God Bless, fun discussion
