    I'm not too well up on auto elec technicalities so here's my problem.
    I have a 24 volt DKW MUNGA 2 stroke jeep, but the ignition system is 12 volt, it has ballast resistor for each coil which are goosed.
    Originals are no longer available, I have located ones with the same value on the internet (7ohms), my question is, is 7ohms suitable irrespective of voltage?.
