Thinking of going back with a blaster 2 or flame thrower coil. I need a 12 volt non resister coil . Does any one know if these coils will work?

I think my problem is that my engine is not wired for a stock coil, but it has a stock coil on it. It has been getting to much voltage put on the coil since the resister wasn't being used. I am planning on the flame thrower coil maybe that will fix it. Also did s compression test all cylinders were in the 135 to 120 range except # 2 cylinder it was 115 does this warrant a overhaul or can I run it?

On the flame thrower or blaster 2 coil. What should I set the gap on an autolite 24 plug?

It doesn't have a wire. It appears that they were just using one side of the resistor for a terminal block.

Spark plug gap .035", the compression is 15%, limit is 10% out not by much I'd run it and recheck later in season. A coil that has a primary resistance of 1.2 ohm or less does not need a ballast resistor. Msd blaster coil 2 is .7 ohm primary resistance, so it should be good to go. That spec was giving to me by msd tech support.

Good CAN i get some help with hoe to wire a Mallory Breakless ing. in a 351w boat is 1990 PS 190 with a stock coil.Skidim said to the coil or the ballast resister but the ohms on the coil are 1.1 to 1.5 don't want to burn the thing up. Thanks

If your coil ohm is below 1.1 u can get away with not running a ballast resistor. My coil is a blaster 2 and I have the factory distributor. It is running great. But my resistor isn't being used. The ballast resistor is mainly for a point style ignition or higher ohms coil.
