Thanks, Mike

Question Re: 250 ignition coil wiring. please help

I know that the tan wire is 12v, but the black stiffer wire is actually in the same crimp as the yellow wire. does this lead off to a resistor?

Assuming a points dist not an HEI. Positive side of coil is resistored ignition feed. Also on Positive side is a bypass wire from the "R" terminal at the starter. this bypass provides a full 12 volts only when cranking. the other side of the coil (negative ) goes to the points.
