There has been a lot of discussion on converting over to HEI and the removal of the original cloth covered "resistor" wire. Well here's some more to talk about. I was going to remove this wire on my 70 SS 396 and run a new one that would supply a full 12 volt's to my ignition. Just for S***'s& Giggle's I took out my multimeter and measured the voltage on the old resistor wire,guess what? 12 volt's! what's up with that?
