Start there. I would look at the Ballast resistor for about a 78 Dodge truck.. worked well on a couple tractors Ive worked on. Ended up adding a hotter coil on a few, Ive even used those big Accel Super coils with the resistor. Makes the tractor start ALOT easier.

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.
