I guess I don't understand. I'm really not afraid to ask any questions. I simply couldn't remember what Ford did not won't at the coil concerning amperage. I did in fact have a Ford N series manual that specifically stated the specs that were needed for a front mount coil. I took those specs and figured out how to drop the amperage to only 3.5 amps at the coil, it seems to me. I'm thinking the manual said they didn't won't over 4.5 amps. because it would obviously burn up the not so great coil even when their new. I've bench wired my coil to 12V battery, and I can get a spark in the open atmosphere. But, does it have spark once the coil gets hot, or put under compression as a spark plug is becomes the question. So, a bench spark becomes an inaccurate test method. I'm also showing 9 ohms of resistance with the coil un-hooked from anything. I do appreciate what you've outlined, as its great information.
