If I remember I'll check it running next time I fire it up and see if it's different.

Chipper is thinking the same as me. If the points are not closed there is no current flowing through the coil and resistor. So there will not be much of any voltage drop.

A simple test is to ground the terminal at the distributor. You know that current will be flowing through the coil and resistor. Then measure the voltages.

I am planning to do that the next time I am with the ”˜49 pickup.
