What coil to use with points

Hi gang, From my other post, having trouble with pertronix unit. I am thinking about going back to points. What coil ( 12v) primary resistance winding do I need. (279 ) v8 . My old coil had no markings on it and I disposed of it.
I figure I can get truck runing while pertronix figures out what went wrong. I know I will need a balast resistor in the circuit,

Thanks,

Jimg 1098

Pretty much any standard 12V coil will get the job done.

Many thanks guys. Down the road I'll let you know how it all went.

Right now I am a little skitish about puting the pertronix back when they send a replacement.
