Im fairly sure the HA12 part of the number means its a Lucas unit and its a normal non ballast resistor type. I had a similar problem with my Morris 1000 recently, I ended up trying two ballasted types (a morris doesnt have a ballast resistor) and had all sorts of problems.

Basically a ballasted resistor type coil is meant to run on something like 6 or 9volts and will give a huge spark on a normal 12V system, a ballast type coil will still work, in fact it'll work great, it just would not last for very long.

Hope this helps a bit


Id get a non-ballast one.

I am looking for a spare ignition coil to have as a
