In Reply to: Coil Now Gets Hot- With New Distributor posted by mrlewp87 on Wednesday, June 25, 2014:
Jim, yes, I find the paper (or any non electric conducting material) to be easier than trying to turn fan to open points.
I don't believe an open condenser itself will cause coil to overheat. Battery supplied coil current flows when points are closed, and with open condenser there will not be enough secondary voltage from the coil to fire the plugs, so the engine will not run. With engine not running the only way to heat the coil is with distributor side of the coil grounded, either through closed points or unwanted short circuit and the switch left on.
