8n wiring

Brad Hobbs OK guys, I need your help. I shorted out the wiring on my 8n. I thought I would remember how to re-wire it but I don't. It has been converted to 12 volt. It has a front mount distributor with a 12 volt coil mounted on top. It has the amp meter that has a loop which you run the wire through. It has a one wire alternator. Under the amp meter there is a block that most of the wires connect to. Just need to know what goes where.
Thanks for your help.

mark sr A quick search turned up this - https://www.google.com/search?q=8n+wiring+diagram+12+volt&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=xmHQUo-KManhsAT7soDQBw&ved=0CDUQsAQ&biw=1088&bih=486

Some of the others might know of a better site.

Re: 8n wiring

mark, your link no worky..

mark sr Sorry about that [PC's aren't my strong suit]

Pics are better anyway!! thanks Ken!

Brad Hobbsb Thanks for the help. Got it wired back up. Doesn't seem to be getting any fire. Is there a way to test and see if the coil is good? It is 12 volt square type. I thought possibly the wires shorting out might have damages the coil.

Re: 8n wiring

First check the inline resistor..

Brad Hobbs Replaced the coil and it started right up. I have a question about the resistor. It has the original that is mounted just below the amp meter but there is an additional one that is not hooked up. When using a 12 volt coil is it necessary to use both resistors? Thanks for the help guys.
Bob G The extra resistor was used with a 6 volt coil. not needed with 12 volt coil, just use the original ballast resistor.
