It sounds like you have to fit a ballast resistor in the power supply to the coil or get a 12 volt coil. Later spits (-ve earth) used a 9 volt coil with a resistor to drop the battery volts down when running, when starting the full volts are used but the starter will drop this to 9 or 10 anyway, this helped cold starts.)

Testimonial: "hi, thanks for the advice , fitted a 12v neg coil from a mini , also cleaned petrol pump out that helped a lot , car seems to be running spot on "
easy... remove the mechanical tach and fit the light from the old one to the new eletric tach. Next run a wire from the back of the tach connection that looks like a small pole and run that to your ignition coil - negative side. Also make sure the ground wire (black) is mounted to one of the install bracket posts that hold the tach in place behind the dash.

Easiest way is to follow the battery cables. if the Negitave (-) goes to the engine block , frame or body, that is a negitive gorund system. If the Positive (+) does, it is a Positive ground system.
