So I am currently running the little pertronix ignitor gimmick in place of the old school points. I am currently running the stock wire that runs from the firewall and has the resistor built into the line and i am running into a low voltage problem at the distributor. I am going to run a full 12 volts to the dist but I was wondering where would be the best place to pull this power source from without hacking out the resistor wire.

Any opinions would be lovely. :eek2:

Now that I think about it, I am going to have to come off the ignition switch from the start/run wire. If I try and pull 12 volts elsewhere I will lose power in the start position yes?

I have my Pertronix connected to one of the alternator wires that is hot in START and RUN.
