Re: [Chrysler300] correct 300H ignition coi voltagel

Because volts are moving  and load is pulsating on ballast the reading is kind of meaningless . 
But that sounds about right . If no skipping at high speed and dwell is ok ( that is what really matters --you need an old fashioned dwell meter to get dual points right  ) you are ok . When points  close , v drops through ballast --when open it goes up  to 12 no drop . You Are reading the average . By the way digital meters compound all this due to periodic sampling .  No good on cars .

Can someone p;ease tell me how to tell the diff between a 6v or a 12v coil?

I understand it should be a 6 v coil which gets 12v temporarily why starting by bypassing the ballast resistor.

I  have 5.5 volts running at the coil.
