I agree with all that Kurt. Unless youíre running an engine with high compression and at
High rpm there really isn't a need for a high voltage output coil. It takes a given amount of
time for the field to build to saturation and as the rpm increase there is a point where there
simply isnít enough time for the field to build and the coil looses itís punch. Thatís were
a high voltage coil finds itís place. The stock coil is quite adequate for a stock engine
operating with in its factory power band.

Thanks guys, good input. Here is the response from pertronix TECHNICAL staff after asking them if this is the proper coil for my 49 chevy truck with 6 volt and still running points:

Kurt,

All of our coil are 12V and will work on 6V system when using the correct
coil and Ignitor setup.

Are you using our Ignitor and how many cylinders is your engine?

NOTE: MAKE SURE THE CORRECT COIL IS INSTALLED OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE
IGNITOR.

Kurt,

It looks like Pertronix has confirmed to you what they told me.

It also confirms why that 12v/6v Pertronix coil with 6v Ignitor has been working fine for me for over 10 years.
