Sorry Dan,

That is not a Ballast Resistor! Just a straight dropping resistor. The true Ballast Resistor is as I explained. Low resistance when cold, higher resistance when hot.

Anyone using a 6 volt coil on a 12 volt system needs both.

Neither coil can take full stated voltage. The old Fords actually had a 4 volt coil on them.

Hopefully Bruce will jump in and validate what I've written.
