what is the little thing on the coil on a 85 CJ7?

What is it and do i need to have it on there? It is a little cylinder about 1" long and about .5" wide. A wire from the coil is attached to it. If i do need it where can i buy one?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a condensor (capacitor) to reduce noise / electrical interference generated by the ignition system.

That is exactly what i thought it was. The reason i was asking was-i bought a new coil for it and on the side of the coil it said "to be used with a resistor" and was wondering if this little thingy was the resistor that i needed to use.

Thanks again.
