With a front mount distributor, you should use the original ballast resistor on
the back side of the dash board. Wire wound.
If you have a 6V coil on a 12V conversion, you would need the ceramic one too.
If you have a 12V coil, you only need the ballast resistor. The ceramic one
isn't the same as the ballast resistor.
You've changed parts, which may have helped or hurt, but now that you have
different symptoms, go back and follow the steps Bruce posted for you again.
They should get you to the right point.
You're close, just slow down and do some troubleshooting. It will run. :)

|I never changed part just replaced with new one! I guess the |
ballist resistor on back of dash was never used I'm assuming
cause when I found out there was a resistor back there I
looked and there wasn't anything attached and I check for
continuity and I got nothing so I think it's bad! The ceramic
resistor was the only resistor used and we replaced it with a
new one assuming a 12v one if there is diff ones! The old coil
was a 12v and we bought a new 12v to replace it! We replaced
the contact points and the guy that owns the tractor
supposedly set the points when I took it to him and since we
have pretty much done everything and we are finally getting
fire but just won't start it will hit once maybe twice I'm thinking
that he may have set points wrong but I don't know how or
what they are supposed to be set at! We are thinking its either
the points are set wrong or I'm having gas issues getting to
engine! I know since the ballist resistor wasn't connected to
begin with and has ran before it should run again just need to
figure out what's going on now! Just thinking it could be points
but need to know what to set at! If you have any other ideas let
