What do you mean by "shows no resistance"? Ordinarily, in the electrical/electronics world, such a statement means that the resistance is ZERO Ohms, i.e., a really good heavy copper wire of short length. What does it mean to you?

Both the coil primary & the resistor will be so near to ZERO, that many persons do no recognize what they are reading or the sorry instrument/techniques make it near impossible for them to obtain an accurate measurement. Your EI mfgr. specifies a minimum combined coil + resistor value of 3 Ohms. The resistor can show a red color & ignite a piece of paper when touched, so keep in mind that it is normal for it to be far too hot to touch, unless you enjoy pain & the smell of burning flesh.

I have a quality digital ohm meter. When I said zero resistance I meant the same as touching the two leads of the meter together. 0 ohms.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeNot the way it should be. The coils are generally around 0.5 to 1.5 Ohms if 6v and about 2.5 Ohms if 12v.

The standard Ford 12250 resistor is ~0.4 Ohm cold and ~1.7 Ohms when red hot.

Thanks for the info. I assume then that my coil is bad if it is reading 0.00 ohms. I guess I will be replacing with a 12V coil. Do I still need any type of resistor with a 12V coil?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeYes. Remember I said that Pertronix specifies 3 Ohm minimum for coil + resistor combination? Well, 3 - 2.5 = 0.5, so......use the Ford 12250 resistor.

Thanks for your help Jmor, I just ordered the 2 parts. I'll let you know how it works out.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeAppreciate feedback. Might try Ohmmeter on the new parts when they arrive, too.
