Keep the EI for-go the those troublesome issues with points... Your 6V EI wiil work just fine... Points and EI suffer from the same electrical issues you coil probably needs to go thru a resistor. Its EZ to try run the wire from the top of the coil thru the OEM resistor and from the resistor to ground ...

BUTTTTTTTTTT before you go fudgen with it just in-case it was not like the one I have worked on post ex-zackly how its wired... JMOR is the resident EI expert I am sure he will help you get it wired correctly...

Here is how it is wired as I mentioned in the original post. I can not use the ballast resistor because my EI is grounded to the tractor (this is the opposite polarity - positive ground vs the ballast resistor which is Negative) The coil does not connect to the ballast resistor. The coil is grounded to the engine. There is a wire that runs from the electronic ignition to the same negative terminal as the ignition switch.
