Without changing the coil yer not gonna be Happy!!!
3 Ohm for EI and 5+ Ohms for points... Yes... it does matter....

Am I better buying an after market set up or try get an OEM part for an Ironhead? I can get a points set up here in the UK for about £30 but not sure on make so it could be a cheap Chinese bit of kit.
