52 Distributor wiring?
« on: May 24, 2013, 10:48:58 AM »
I have four wires to contend with. I've the ign wire to coil pos, thru ballast resistor. A neg ground inside distributor. Those two I know are correct. But, does the condenser wire go to back of points on nut, and from there a wire to the neg on coil?
I'm putting in points to double check my pertronix ignition. I'm pretty sure something's amiss there.
Thanks, Mike

Got it. The above is correct. No fires.

There is no ballast resistor on 6-Volt systems. Was your car converted to 12V ?

Yes she was. The previous owner did. Looks like a 53.
