a resistor..


it should be in between key switch and #1.

with #2 jumped to charge stud.

it's the isolation device that takes the place of a 194 lamp or diode to isolate the vreg in the alt from the ignition.

no high magic here.. :)

Might not be magic to you guys, but that's why I asked.

Is there an inline version of this resistor? This one is already corroded because the alternator and this piece jut outside the hood and was in the elements for years before I bought it.

you are looking at the 'inline' version.

inline is just a mounting technique.. :)

you can clean it up and just resolder it to wires and tuck unde the hood.. etc.

To replace it, I just take it to Radio Shack and ask for a new one the same color code, or is there a certain type recommended?

why replace it.. just re-use it.

you are trying awfully hard to make this very easy issue very very difficult.

it's a resistor.. it don't go bad unless it smokes and burns in two or the legs break off.

clean up and put some crimp connectors on it and re-hook it.

or stick a 194 lamp inline from key to #1
