In Reply to: Coil Now Gets Hot- With New Distributor posted by mrlewp87 on Wednesday, June 25, 2014:
Hot coil is due to excessive current. If condenser is open (lost internal connection) it would not affect current. If it were shorted or leaky (high resistance short) it should cause no or weak spark.
Another way to do Jim's test is to put a piece of heavy paper or plastic between the points, then turn switch on and check voltage on the wire between points and distributor. It should be near battery voltage, if it is low you have a short or leakage on distributor side of coil. Check feed through insulator and points/condenser connections in distributor
Is this a 6 or 12 volt system? If 12 volts with 6 volt coil and a resistor between coil and switch check that resistor is not bypassed.
