Ignition Coil

Have a Lucas question?

Ignition Coil

Postby Theycallmeford » Sun Dec 17, 2006 3:20 pm

New:
coil, points, condensor, battery, plugs, wires, rotor, and cap

everything wired correctly

engine runs for short periods of time now, but misses and does not rev properly, coil gets hot quick,

I think the coil is getting hot because there is no ceramic resistor wired up. Is this assumption correct or should I look into something else?

Also, with the pertronix ignition would I even need the resistor, or is it basically stand alone sytem?

Thanks guys and gals,

Jason

Is the new coil a "resitor" type coil? It will say so on it. If so you need the resistor or you will fry the points.
But you mentioned a Petronix, maybe that is the problem. I fried 3 of them before I gave up on them. One lasted almost all day.

No, I meant if I were to use the petronix system, what would I have to change.

I'm running a regular ignition system right now and the coil is the standard that came on the car stock. I'll have to look next time I work on it.

Check that the primary to the coil polarity is correct if its backward it would run.... pooorly get hot then quit. cool off start again. May also need a resistot as priously quoted.

Will you please reiterate what you are saying?

"the primary to the coil polarity"

and what would be backwards...

are you saying I could have the polarity on the coil reversed?
I have a positive ground car, and the switch wire and fuel pump wires are connected to the negative side of the coil; the positive side leads to the distributor.
