  • Electrical: 6 or 12 volt coil on 58 golden hawk

    I'm putting a new coil on my hawk. The one I took off was a 12 volt that says external resistor on it, but two local auto parts stores both list a 6 volt. The car has a 12 volt system. What's going on. Thanks as always.

    The parts stores are wrong.

    Go to a NAPA store and ask for an Echlin #IC-12 coil and Echlin ICR-13 resistance unit.

    Those are old numbers and may have been superceded, but they will still likely have the parts with the new number(s). BP
