I scrounged around in all my used parts and found a coil off a 56 truck. Hooked it up and the 55 fired on the first piston to the top. Runs perfect. New coil here we come!!!

Good deal, you got it. :-) Remember our little discussion about coils, 3 ohm primary winding needs no resistor on 12V. A 1.5 ohm coil primary needs a matching resistor of about 1.5 ohm on 12V.

I went to NAPA last night and purchased a new 12V coil. It is stated on outside of coil that no external resistor is needed. I also bought a spare set of points and condensor to throw in the glove box. I always like to do that. Think I might throw that used coil that I used to test last night in the glove box too.
Thanks for the help.
