well we discovered something at least, as usual, it cant be a simple deal it has to be a totally bizarre out in the field problem,when i went and picked up the 4th set of points in 3 days, i took the whole thing inther with me, what we discovered was the contact on the movable half of the points is being pulled thru the pivot block, its actually trying to weld the 2 pieces of points together! now when i replaced the ballast resister i ordered the original style and replaced the wires from the original one to the new one 1 terminal at a time,so no chance of mixing the wires up, im going over to the tractor with a volt meter in a few and seeing what kind of voltage the coil wire has on it, if 12,the ballast resistor isnt working or somebody changed something if it has 6 any other ideas of how i could be getting that kind of voltage to the points??

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeIt looks like that answered my question........plastic rubbing block, not phenolic. Anyway, too much current. You must measure coil voltage with points closed (current flowing) in order to get anything in way of meaningful measurement. Measure input of resistor to ground & output of resistor to ground with current flowing, too.

Answered mine too. Excess current, excess heat.

I don't remember if the coil was 6 volt or 12 volt if it was mentioned.
