Default CSI electronic Ignition

I purchased a CSI electronic distributor. The instructions say the resistor value of the coil should be more than 2.5 ohm. An analogue meter shows about 1 ohm. The instructions recommend a Bosch blue coil. Mine is a reddish orange with numbers on it that don't match anything I can find on line. Do I need different coil (or a more accurate meter)?

This is all Greek to me. Sorry I can't help but this would be a great topic for the meeting this coming Tuesday, Apr 17.

That sounds about right for the Ducilier (sp?) coil used with the electronic 65D distributors. I have one that measures .77 ohms using a digital multi meter. If you are going to buy a blue Bosch coil, get one that was made in Brazil. Supposedly they are made to German specs for use in the German market-should be about 3.2 ohms. The VW part number is 043 905 115C. Try this web site; www.busdepot.com. Edit; Don't know if that part # is for 6V or 12V.
