Hey there...have had ford 9ns 2ns and 8ns never had this issue. Sometimes when I go to start the 8n I have to temporarily put a jumper from coil to positive battery side to start. If the key is on after this it will turn off afterward and then restart all day without the initial jump. I had to recently replace the resistor as I would have to jump across it from time to time to start. After replacement she fired up every time all summer. Now having this issue. I am confused.
