Default Re: my 34 jalopy is alive !

thank you bubba. i just now returned from the parts store, and studied the book. many of the ballast in the book do not show a resistor value. the counter kid got on a crossover web sight that did give us more data, but still not all the ballasts are giving all the values. of the ones shown, a standard ru 10 shows to be the highest ohm value at 1.87, used in many 50's era gm cars and trucks. interesting that the 59 ford recommended by skip is showing 1.35, coming in at the lower end of whats available. that would get me to 2.4 total, better than where its at now. they had no knowledge of the fine strand wire for the dizzy, i'll keep lookin for that. again, thanks bubba, and jseery for getting this far

Here are some Ford number I copied down from somewhere. So many cars used them they should be available. Might check online.

There are three possible resistor wires used in FoMoCo vehicles in the 1970's.
COLF-12250-A .. Resistor Wire-Ignition Coil (Motorcraft DY-37).

61.49" long / Color coded PINK / 1.30-1.40 ohms resistance / #20 gauge wire.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
D1AZ-12250-A .. Resistor Wire-Ignition Coil (Motorcraft DY-84-Y).

60" long / Color coded RED with GREEN stripes / 1.30-1.40 ohms resistance / #16 gauge wire.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D7AZ-12250-A .. Resistor Wire-Ignition Coil (Motorcraft DY-213).

49" long / Color coded RED / 1.30-1.40 ohms resistance / #16 gauge wire.

From what I'm seeing so far salvage might be the best source.
