Blaster 2 coil with Pertronix Ignitor?
I have a 67 Ford Fairlane with a 390. It's mainly a street cruiser with a 3x2 carb setup and a very slight upgraded cam (slight lope idle).
The distributor is stock with a Pertronix Ignitor electronic conversion inside. It was installed be a previous owner. Age is unknown. The car also had a matching Pertronix coil. Recently had a slight part throttle misfire and found the coil was leaking a little oil around the terminals. I replaced the coil with a Blaster 2 #8202 coil.
Do I need to use a ballast resistor with this coil/ignition combo?
It did not have a ballast resistor with the old coil. I did look it the Pertronix coils are available with either 1.5 or 3.0 Ohms Primary resistance (not sure which one I had) vs the MSD coil's .7 ohms.
BTW, the part throttle misfire is still there despite new coil, plugs, wires, cap and rotor.
