    JEGS 40102 Details

    • Installed on the battery wire to the coil (+).
    • For use with coils that do not utilize a built-in resistor such as JEGS 555-40100 or 555-40105 coils.
    • Should always be mounted to the firewall (or another non-heated metal surface) for additional heat dissipation.

    JEGS ballast resistor is designed to be used on low resistance ignitions such as breaker point and some optical trigger breakerless systems. Ceramic construction prevents overheating of the system for durability while maintaining consistent coil current and spark duration. Rated at 1.6 Ohm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jegs ballast resistor overall OK product; however, the studs are not securely mounted in the resistor which makes the installation more difficult than a stock ballast resistor.
