|Six volt systems typically use primary windings in the coil of .6 to 2 ohms. |
Twelve volt systems (with breaker points) tend to use the same coils with external resistors giving an additional 1.2 - 1.4 ohms in primary resistance.
Twelve volt systems with NO external resistor tend to use the same total primary resistance built into the coil-can. I.e. .6 - 1.8 ohms in the can plus 1.2 - 1.4 ohms external = 1.8 - 3.2 ohms total (and sometime higher).
12 volt breakerless systems often use "six volt" type coils with no external resistor.
