1962 MM Jet Star III

H Michael Viator I own a Jet Star III that I recently Replaced the coil and distributor cap, points. After replacing the coil, which I was told that was the correct coil, I have not been able to keep the tractor running. After 3 different coils, I am at the point where I want to throw up my hands. I am an automotive tech, yet I am unable to get tghe proper voltage to the points. Is there any one out there that can help me find the correct coil and points or at least find my problem.
I will also mention I have tested the condensor and there is Battery voltage to the coil.
Thanks

Steve Martinek The coil has to have an internal resistor otherwise it will burn the points. Many replacement coils do not have the internal resistance -- especially automotive replacement. An external resistor can be used with a plain coil if necessary. Hope this helps.
Frank Go to the auto store and buy a external resistor and install it between the switch and the coil. This will reduce the voltage and stop the burning up of the points and the coil. Also replace the points with HD type points.
