Best Answer

There should be no power directly to the distributor. Power goes to one side of the coil. The distributor pulls voltage from the other side of the coil down to ground and every time the coil is supposed to fire, the connection to ground is opened. When starting, voltage goes directly to the coil. When the engine is running, the voltage goes through a resistor.

How can coil effect the strength of electromagnet?

That's because the strenght of the electromagnet is related to the number of coils then, the more coils gets more strenght because as you add more coils to the electromagnet you have more and more magnetic field. -I hope this answer helps you if you have a question regarding any questions on any subject please fell free to ask. Thank You

What happens to an electromagnet when electricity runs through it?

When an electric pulse runs through an electromagnet, the current travels in the electromagnets coils, causing a magnetic field to be developed inside and outside of the coils. The amount of coils, tightness of the coils, and the space between the coils are all very important factors in the production of said EM field.
