In Reply to: ballast resistor / pertronix wiring help, please posted by carlo '69 02 on June 26, 2001 at 14:40:19:

resistor. You can connect the wire that used to go to the resistor directly to the red wire. Don't remember which resistor wire to use but try each one until car runs after starting. Use a male/male connector to bridge the wires.

i was just hooking up my new pertronix ignitor when i noticed that the final thing to do is connect the red wire from the ignitor to the ballast resistor. Well, as you can see by the pic, that's gonna be difficult because there's only one pin to plug it in to & I already bridged a wire from my fuel shut off solenoid (black) there into the ignition wire (green). I know i can get a double pronged pin for the resistor, but is it safe to have all three pugged into it? Is there a better place to run the fuel shut off solenoid wire?
please let me know.
