I know this has been discussed a lot but after reading ALL topics about the subject, I still can't find an answer to my question. Their instructions state that you should KEEP the resistor wire in the system but they also say that if you run a ballast resistor in the system (like Chrysler), you should wire the pertronix module on the ignition switch side of the ballast resistor. Well, correct me if I am wrong, but to me, that means 12 volts. What about us guys(GM) who have a resistor wire ? should I wire the coil with the resistor wire and the pertronix with a separate 12 volt source ? I am really confused here. I wish to retain the factory Delco point-type coil. Please help.
Frank.

If you have the original resistor wire you do not need a ballast resistor. It's either one or the other. Some guys have run a full switched 12 volts to the ignitor while others just come off the resistor wire. Best I read either way works. The original coil still needs the resistor wire. http://www.chevelles.com/forum/Forum22/HTML/001601.html
