Testing a 6V ignition coil


Post by old man emu »

What are the resistance values in ohms for the primary and secondary windings of a 6V ignition coil?

Thanks. OME

There are NO 6V nor 12V coils..
There is only difference in coils for points ignition (3-4 Ohms) and coils for electronic ignition (1-2 Ohms).
A "points" coil can be used for an electronic system, vice versa is a NO-NO..
