I installed a HotSpark ignition with an after market coil. With this coil, do you still recommend that I should NOT use resistor plugs? The problem that I was having was finding copper plugs that have the threaded end where the wires plug onto. BTW, the engine is running very strong with no signs of lack of power to the engine.
Here are the specs on the coil:
Ideal for use with 6-cylinder or 8-cylinder electronic ignition or with points
More turns of copper wire than other standard-sized canister coils
High secondary resistance (10K Ohms) sends as much as 45,000 volts to the spark plugs
Heavy-duty, high-energy coil
Standard 56mm X 112mm (2.2 in. X 4.4 in.) canister size - fits stock-sized coil clamp
Primary resistance: 1.7 Ohms
Secondary resistance: 10K Ohms
Turn ratio 143:1
Primary inductance 2.36 mH
Secondary inductance 33-38 H
Solid, epoxy-filled canister (not oil-filled) for high-vibration environments
Three-way 1/4" brass male connectors on both terminals
Rugged, mirror-polished, non-corrosive case won't chip or peel over time, like chrome-plated coil canisters
Designed specifically to produce maximum spark with Hot-Spark electronic ignition or points.
