6 volt - front mount 8n Wiring diagram

The diagram I'm finding everywhere is the one for the late-1950+ 8n.
I've got the older 1950 model w/front mount. The diagram for the late 50's is fine for 90% of the wiring but there is a resistor under the Ammeter that is apparently merged with the terminal block and differences with the coil wiring.

Is there a diagram for my application online somewhere?

Also, if there is a resistor wired in series with my coil lead coming from the keyswitch - does that mean the current coil(external round) is a 12v? I'll be switching back to a new front mounted coil but I currently have an "altered" 6v external setup.

So do I still need the resistor someone installed in series with the 6v round coil? If I use the OEM dash-mounted resistor & the one "someone" installed near the coil that would reduce the voltage to much right?

So if thats the case - I need to only have one of the resistors in between the coil and the ignition. Which would mean I could just connect the hot(coil) wire to the other side of the dash resistor which would give it power w/o going through the dash mounted one...

Maybe a should take some pics....

OK - it just dawned on me that a resistor isn't gonna step 6v "UP" to 12v so Obviously it's a 6v coil. So why the resistor?

I think so - I found that one right after posting by using 9n instead of 8...

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
