"1950 8n side mount"

Since this is a side mount distributor which should have the round can coil, do yourself a favor and replace your 6 volt coil with a 12 volt - no external resistor required coil, such as NAPA IC14SB or equivalent.

This will operate directly off of 12 volt system and eliminate the extra resistor. Should save a lot of confusion.

I would also replace wire harness if wires are old and cracked.

-- post on coil to side of distributor for negative ground, + post to side of distributor for positive ground. Same points and condenser for 6 or 12 volt.
