My first question would be is the distributer installed correctly and is the timing preset correctly.

just found out there is a built in resister in the ignition circuit to drop the voltage to the coil could this be the ghost problem i'm having with the erratic firing .some times the car runs sometimes it doesn't?currently not , what would happen if it was removed from the circuit ? is this possible to do without hurting or damaging something else ?
