Does anyone know where to buy the resistor wire that goes from the firewall block to the coil? I need only the wire, not the whole harness.

Re: resistor wire

our local Auto Value parts store carries it... call your NAPA and other places to see if they do.

Re: resistor wire

No luck with NAPA or Autozone. Steps, if you use the ballast resistor, do you just use a 14ga. stranded auto wire to wire it in?

Re: resistor wire

I went to an HE?I yrs ago....and it crapped out
I kept my orginal dizzy with HT leads etc 'just in case' for a clean swap
I had replaced the orginal resitance wire to put the HEI in....well not really it was wound up inside the loom....
I went down to the local car wreaking yard here in NZ and pulled a GM holden ballest resister of the firewall..

you canot use an ordinary wire...it will heat up like an electrical heater element and burn your car out.
