I am ditching my Mallory dual point for a Pertronix Flame Thrower II. My boat has a ballast resistor. What do I do about that? Should I just connect the two wires going in and out of the ballast resistor? Any advice would be appreciated.
Ok i have ballast resistor set up on my 460 this will be my 3rd resistor in a yr. Im running a pertronix flame thrower billet distributor d132800 and a accell super coil 140001 what kind of coil can i buy to where i wont need the ballast resistor anymore.
I would like to get rid of the points but can't afford a new dizzy right now. Is there another option? How does this system wire up? The dizzy has a place to hook wires on and has a condensor hooked there now. tia
The mini starter I just got doesn't have the "R" terminal on it for the ballast resistor.
Why can't I put that wire on the same terminal as the solenoid wire? Its hot when key is turned...however, I'm sure there's a reason why they dont' do that to begin with anyway though, so why not?
