Glad you got the old girl running good John. I am still studying that pesky ballast resistor. The "round can" coils have a built in resistor and larger gauge wire so do not need a resistor. The "square can" coils are smaller gauge wire and no internal resistor and insulated with tar. Some applications/vehicles use a square coil with resistor (or two) and some use none. I ran my 9N for a season without the resistor before I was told I needed one. I know for a fact you need all the gaskets in the front mount distributor or they will get packed full of snow LOL.
