Re: Possible Resistor problem
Best route to take to eliminate the resistive wire would be to fold back the wire in the engine harness and tie it off to prevent it from touching other surfaces. Maybe even put a length of shrink tubing around to insulate it.
Then, run a #12 AWG wire from the fusebox spade labelled IGN. Measure it to be sure it only has voltage during IGN. After confirming proper action, run the new ign wire from this spade through the firewall, grommeted hole, to the + terminal of the coil. Attach yellow wire with it.
Tach wire goes to - terminal of coil or to TACH terminal/wire of new ignition system depending upon manufacturer. Follow their instructions.
L88 camshafts are lopey. Confirm all cylinders firing by either placing a drop of oil/WD40 onto each header tube and see it evaporate or read each tube with a temp gun, aka, 400°F or more. Adjust carb mixture screws using a vacuum gauge and adjust for the highest reading. Maybe alittle more initial timing, i.e., 10°-12° BTDC, but not enough to kick against the starter when hot.
