I am looking to replace the resistor? located on the firewall just behind the valve cover on my '72. It has a wire entering from the interior and goes to the coil from the other side. It is badly corroded and loose. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate the help. I realize that I will probably have to wake up all of the bullnose I-6 owners to get an answer.

It is a standard ballast resistor, just go to the parts store and ask for one for your vehicle, they should have it. Take off the air cleaner, cover the carb, disconnect the wires from the resistor, and remove it from the firewall. If the connections on the wires are corroded as well replace them too, just standard ring terminals. It is a good idea to keep the brands of the coil and the resistor the same, so buy it at the same place you bought your coil if that is possible.
