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.

You can't go wrong using one for a '56 (original 12v) V8

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.
