I am working on a Willys 1951 M38 and have some electrical questions. The first: I installed an Electronic Distributor. The instructions call for a "resistor". The motor runs without resistor. Will this cause a problem?

ALL have to have a resistor. You either have a internal or external resisting coil. You have to wire it accordingly or you will ruin the module in the electronic distributor.

Thank you for the quick response. I would like to use an external resistor, but I do not know which one to buy. Kaiser advises me to buy a new coil, with internal resistor, but that will require 90 minutes of driving to return recently purchases coil and then purchase and install new coil. Any advise?

Give Mike a call at Toll Free: 1-888-648-4923 to discuss return shipping options (if the coil you recently purchased was from us). You would not have to deliver the part in person to make a return and would not need to pay a restocking fee if your purchase was within the past 15 days. Mike will help you in any way he can and answer any questions you have.
