By the looks of the 77 232 in my CJ, it has a resistor before the coil. I get 12.8 volts into it and 12 volts out of the resistor. I'm not getting any spark and I suspect it's a bad coil.

A friend gave me an Accel 140001 (ACCEL brand | Part #: 140001) coil that he had kicking around from a waggy project he sold. I'm wondering if I need to run the resistor with this accel coil, or if I can run it straight off the ignition wire.

Also, I got the coil used with no adapter on top. How can I rig it up to fit the fitting on the wire from the distributor to the coil?

Hopefully this solves my no spark issue and and I can move on to the carb.

if the accel coil is threaded then you cut the wires and add rings terminals.

If you are trying to do this on the cheep, I understand. BUT you are throwing good money after bad, pull the distributor out of the 77 and throw it as far as you can, replace it with a stock 1979 jeep distributor for a 258 and do the team rush ignition upgrade. then you can move on to the carb and not worry about the spark for a long long time. The 77 distributor is a piece of crap.

+1 on the team rush upgrade. I did most of it on mine.

There looks like there is a flat head screw down in the hole. Looking at product photo's online, it looks like it comes with a boot for the coil and nothing else.

I didn't realize that a remaned dist was only $44. I'll have to put that on my list.

Now as for the resistor, do I need to run a resistor with this coil?

Are you sure that you are looking at a resistor and not a capacitor?? Can we see a picture?

the 77 had no resistor.

the 75 may have , I guess.
