Stock '36 pickup, the coil failed and I've been told that there's not a reliable stock type coil to be had, so I put a remote coil kit and a 6V coil on it. I connected the stock coil wire to the new coil. The engine has an intermittent misfire under load and is a little lazy. Idles perfect though. Occasionally runs better after a few miles, but not reliably. I went through the distributor at the same time, everything is new inside. Plugs are new, gapped at .035, and look clean and perfect for color considering about 200 miles use. Carb rebuilt also and works fine. Starts instantly with no throttle when hot. The only item not changed is the plug wires. They are the original wires on the truck, and I'm trying to keep it as original as possible so I have not changed them yet. Before I change them, is the coil conversion done correctly? I'm not used to having a resistor on a 6V system, and I'm wondering if that's unique to the stock Ford coils, or if it's still needed on the modern style coil. Is it safe to bypass the resistor and run 6V straight to the coil to test the operation that way?
