I have finally decided to move from the "dreaded points" and install pertronix ignitions in my 3 Kadetts. I am familiar with the wiring on a GT regarding the red wire to the resistor wire connection on the fuse box. However, the resistor wire on a Kadett connects to the back of the ignition switch. Should I splice into the wire connection? :confused:
Thanks,
Gerry

Believe it or not, the shortest and most direct source for switched 12V on a Kadett is the horn's black/yellow wire connection, behind the grill on the right side. :eek: Remove the grill for access and jumper a wire to that connection. Run it across the top of the radiator along the headlight wiring loom to the left side and then through the radiator support sheet metal to a connector for the Pertronix red lead in the distributor. ;)
