Ok, so I've got a 3 litre V6 Essex in the Pop, it has a universal wiring loom in it, dizzy/coil is wired up how I think it should be, feed from loom to + ve side of coil, also a wire from alternator to + ve side, - ve side has points only, there is NO ballast resistor.
Dizzy is a black capped Motorcraft (?), main problem is very rough running when in drive, ticking over it's fine, revs cleanly etc, but in any gear it pulls itself down and hardly runs on anything over no throttle...
Now, should I:
A) bin points + condensor and fit an Accuspark electronic kit,
B) fit a ballast resistor????
