And coil was not properly wired. It was grounded to the engine and not running through the resistor. From what everyone says, the coil should be damaged.
My thought is that the coils are tougher than they used to be or the current running through the coil is below spec. Just me guessing.
But thank you for teaching me and being patient while I figured it out.
What I have learned from these types of forums (I have an 82 Corvette, 82 Jeep, 89 Conquest and 97 BMW), is that electrical problems can be very very challenging to diagnose. Mechanical is relatively easy. You can see it and feel it. But electrical is requires a much higher understanding of that particular vehicle. And the person that is having the problem needs to provide accurate and precise information to the members of the forum.
But I am always so impressed with the people who are so dedicated to helping members of the forum. It is like being part of a large family where everyone wants to help resolve your problem. It is a beautiful thing to be part of.
