Re: Ignition resistor wire removal 1973 torino
Replace the resistor wire from the switch to the block but then as previously stated, include the bypass wire so the coil gets full 12volts while in the 'crank ' position.
I did the same procedure on my 69 but left the old resistor wire in the harness and ran a new red one from the switch forward.
Hope this helps....John
