I am changing a 8n to 12 volts. I have purchased a 12 volt coil. Do I need to add a resister from the switch to the coil?

Yes, you need the oem ballast resistor and no others.

Is the oem ballast resistor installed on your tractor?

Yes the original resister is there. I was affraid to use it because I thought it would burn out being a 6 volt resister. Thanks for the advice. When it warms up a little I will try to finish the conversion.

You only need the original resistor no extra ones. Here is a diagram JMOR made hope it helps.

" I thought it would burn out being a 6 volt resister."

Nope. 6v or 12v doesn't matter to this resistor. It's there to reduce current to the coil when the tractor is running.
