Dell, Do you have any write ups on your ways to convert to 12 volt that work all the time? Mine has been running good until this past winter. Seems now like it dosen't want to start or run unless you jump around the 12 volt dropping resistor. Not about to leave it that way or run it very long as I don't want to burn up a coil. What voltage reading should you get from the output of the dropping resistor to ground?

Bill.........NO, unfortunately I don't have enny write-ups to convert to 12-volts. Do a search for JMOR who has published several good pictorial drawings to convert to 12-volts.

You ask......."What voltage reading should you get from the output of the dropping resistor to ground?".......would you believe 1/2 the applied battery voltage? That means about 6-volts for a 12-volt battery. When the points are CLOSED! When the points are OPEN, you will read the 12-volt battery volts. Ittza LAW, Kirchhoff's Law. ........Dell
