My neighbor's 424 died, and had no spark. He replaced the coil, with no success. I changed the points and condenser, still no luck. We bypassed the coil resistor, and its running fine. 12 volt system, 12 volt coil, what is the purpose of the resistor, and can we eliminate it? Coil didn't heat up, with the resistor bypassed. Ed
