Going to install a new petronix electronic distributor and get rid of the points. Question is, the instructions say I now dont need the resistor anymore and to connect the wires together to bypass the risistor. The instructions does not distinguish between the top and bottom wires of the resistor, or mention the wiper motor wire. Can anyone help? Dennis

The wiper motor wants 12V so if you connect all three to one side of the resistor that will work.
If you don't want the resistor hanging on the firewall anymore solder splice the two resistor wires together and also at the same spot splice in a male/female connector for the wiper.
