Bruce, The add-on resistor shows 3.5 ohms. The coil(top post to pigtail) shows 2.4ohms. How do I check the original resistor? The bottom post is now being used as a terminal block to connect 3 wires and the 2 top post are not used. But to check it, which post should I test?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Is the original resistor being used or not? If it's not in-line w/ the coil circuit, then disregard it. You measure the resistance across the terminals.

At this point, if you had points, I'd say you have too much resistance in the circuit & low voltage. (14.5v/5.9 ohms = 2.45 amps for running current) But, at start-up, 5v/5.9 ohms gets you .84 amps.

Try jumping it directly to the starter post.
Lets see if soundguy or JMOR can help out now because I'm reluctant to tell you to hook up the OEM resistor & take out the kit supplied resistor because I'm not sure of the max current that EI can handle.

EI and points suffer from the same issues... It should be a no brainier...
If I were leading him and missed it I would be out to bone'n up on why I missed it... We are all wrong at times its those that never learn from being wrong that will never get anywhere...

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeBruce, that is what he needs to do. Replace present resistor with a piece of wire and connect one of the top terminals of the three terminal board to ign switch output and the other top terminal to the top of coil.

Thank you Bruce, I have to go to work for a few hours so I will get back here later. You wrote 14.5 volts, is that what a fully charged battery should show? What is the lowest you accept before recharging? I'm going to buy a hydrometer and learn to use it also.
