    I am currently in the process of converting my 1954 belair 235 6v to 12v. My question is I just bought a internally resisted 12v coil. when I hook up everything do I need to still hook up the old capistor (condensor) that was on the 6v coil?

    Thanks!

    That condensor is for radio noise ... doesn't matter either way ...

    Bingo! The condenser on the coil is not part of the ignition system. The condenser on the coil is for radio noise.

    I once bought an nos radio kit for the dealer installed radio. It had the condenser and the special grounding clip for the hood with instructions on where the parts went when adding a dealer installed radio. There were lots of strange parts in a dealer radio kit.
