Are you referring to the ballast resistor? If so it provides a voltage drop
so you don't get a full 12-13 volts across the points causing them to pit and
If you have an electronic dizzy you shouldn't be using a ballast resistor.

Subject: [Roadsters] maybe I am not naming this part correctly???
I am talking about/referring to the little cylinder looking part that mounts
ight above the coil.
I cannot find a part number for it in any of my books or online.
Is this piece a condenser? Or considered part of the coil.
Still clueless in WI
