We got my sons 2N started for about 20 seconds. Problem, had the 6 volt coil wored directly to 12 volt battery. It only ran the gas out of the carburetor. Not it has no spark. Was this enough time to fry the coil since we didn't get the resistors in the system????? Please tell me there is hope for it. It gets hot on the side now with just a few seconds of cranking.

Thanks for the advice

Farmer..... ..unlike 6-volt lightbulbs that go "pooof" when you overvolt'em with 12-volts, it take TIME (upto 1-hr) to damage (melt the interal insulative tars) the squarecan 6-volt coil with 12-volts. And yes, yer square can coil gitts HOT, that is normal.

Most likely, you OVERHEATED yer ignition points and melted the chinzy plastic rubbing block and yer points slipped closed. The SHORT points screw (p/n: 355047-S7, #8x3/16") is also known for INVISABLE thread wear and unable to hold yer points gap (0.015) consider replacing it. It is also available from your local Ford automobile dealer parts counter..... ....Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister

Maybe you did maybe you didn't. You also may have burned the points which would also cuase you to have no spark or maybe they welded them selfs togeather and that would make the coil get hot fast also

If it't getting hot while cranking but you have no spark, then the primary circuit through the coil is complete and not breaking to throw a spark. Check to make sure that the points haven't slipped shut. That happens more often than you think. You likely haven't cooked the coil, but quit horsing around and get the dang resistor in it or you will!
