coil differences??

my 79 motron has a bad 6v coil i think. I read plenty of voltage coming out of the engine, but only about 2v coming out of the coil

My question,,,

I borrowed a coil from my buddies (79 6v ped),, and MY coil only has ONE metal stab that accepts the input voltage from the motor. My BUDDIES coil (from a same vintage 6v ped) has TWO stabs.

Whats the difference?

I'm not sure I can use his as a 'test' on mine, is that true?

thanks in advance

One spade lug should be tied to ground. Check your friends ped to see which one that is then tie it to ground on your ped.
