1970 Opel Gt - Purchased July 1972 - Chartreuse - restored - 3000 miles as of 02-16, 2021 -
Ballast resistor has been cut and taped off and all wiring matched Petronix wiring instructions - I believe this chapter, which has turned out to be a long one is now finished. I feel confident that all is as it should be and also feel confident that I can make a long trip without worry, 115 miles today on a very hot day everything was perfect. Thanks for noticing the wiring, actually that is a direct result of one of your post's, and you thought no one listens. Plus I have a show coming up and have lots to do in the next two weeks to get everything in apple pie order, do people still say that................OooooOooooo! Nice tidy wiring!
I haven't read this whole thread, but just follow the Pertronix wiring and coil selection suggestions. I made the mistake of keeping a ballast resistor in the circuit and had the oil in the coil boil out and a subsequent breakdown and towing.
