A 6 volt External coil, is 2.0 to 2.4 ohms and 5,800 to 6,200 ohms. Use a good Ohm meter and get accurate results. Low side input positive to a ground or negative terminal. High side input positive to the output ignition wire screw lug. Remember to set your ohm scales and minus the meter resistance.
