    Where is the ignition resistor wire?

    So I'm verifying the connection I have made for the Pertronix Ignitor Distributor in my wife's '73 XR7.

    Presently I have a Red w/ Lt Green wire to the coil (OEM).Click image for larger version.

ID:	101547 The drawing from Pertronix seems to say to hook up that red wire from the Ignitor Dist. to the ignition wire ahead of the resistor wire. I don't see a resistor wire leading to the coil- I am looking at the coil path (Green Dots). Is the resistor wire supposed to be on that path?

    The resistor wire is under the dash, connecting the steering column to the firewall.
