ignition coil help

I have a 79 spider 2000. needing help with coil. Can not get good results testing it. Problem is on the coil it says " use with external resistor". Where would the resistor be?


The number on the coil is D-511/512 12 volt. Is this the correct coil?

Re: ignition coil help

On the 1979 200 you should have a electronic distributor, on those there is no resistor also the coil should be made for the electronic distributor.
After a quick search the D511/512 coil is a GM 80's coil, i do not now much about them, you should search if it is for a points distributor or it might need a external resistor.
I would dump that coil and use a Marrelli or Bosh blue coil.
