The voltage stays the same on the primay side of the coil. 12-14V
A volt meter does not tell you much at all about your charging system. That is what an ammeter is for.

The new coil is drawing more amperage. You may need a higher amperage rated alternator. Or, maybe the one you have isn;t charging where it should be. A dead cell in the bettery could also cause ampacity loss.
