[TR] TR6 low tension wire

I have a new 6V coil on my shelf. Don't know where it came from. It says on the printing on the side "6V NO EXTERNAL RESISTOR REQUIRED 904". Haven't used it because I never knew what it is for.
I do have a 74. So it does have the resistor wire and the 12 volt wire off the starter relay. I was told by another individual that a 1.5 ohm coil is to be used with resistance wire. Or 3 ohm without the resistance wire. Don't know if this 6V coil is anything useful or not.

The later TR6's have a 6v coil that gets a full 12v supply during cranking then 6v during normal running. The 6v is via a resistance wire. You have the option of fitting a 12v coil and just using a fixed 12v supply. Easy to do on the 74's, just move a wire from the relay to the fuse box. On the 73 you need to add a new wire from the fuse box to the coil.

Question: Is the low tension wire from the coil to distributor something special? Triumph TR6 with points. Is it a resistor wire or something? Or can I fabricate a wire without resistance and use that?
