Check with an ohm meter. If shorted it's bad. If it shows ohm meter increasing let it build, then reverse leads and it should drop back to zero and then build again. If so chances are fairly good that it's ok, unless it fails after operating awhile. If it shows open it's no good.

Only sure test is to replace with a known good one. New does not mean it's good.

Condenser doesn't care if system is 6 or 12 volt and doesn't care if positive or negative ground.

A good auto parts should be able to cross reference one to your tractor or engine.

Actually, it's a 1928 Chrysler with that 172 cid 4 cyl. Napa doesn't have a book that goes back that far, so I was "fishing" for what value, if there is one, that I could use. I once heard that one for a "H" Farmall will work,but how would I know if it's right?

The Farmall condenser measures .15 mfd.most autos use .25 mfd.The wrong value will cause metal transfer on the points.

In the ignition systems there is room to go bigger or smaller as for MFD of a condenser. Take the old one in and find one that fits and your most likely to be ok. But it is not common for a condenser to go bad and they can and will last decades
