ignition coil

Finally done with wiring got a new starter button, still will not start, so I'm guessing I need a new coil. I have been told they are hard to find. It's an auto-lite 6 volt positive ground ignition coil. There are 2 on ebay but they are for an 8 cylinder. Does that make a difference, and they do not say positive ground were all cars in the 40's positive ground or no?
but on the bright side, she sounds much better and she really wants to start just no spark. I tried the old screw driver in plug wire thing no spark. Any suggestions?

coil

there are no difference in a v8 or a 6 cylinder coil . the coil does not know how many cylinders there are. just hook up it up the way your present coil is.
