I had an A-100 one time that if you floored the acclerator, the kickdown linkage would knock one of the wires off the ballast resistor. lol

Freaked me out the first time it happened.

One the on the firewall is for the ignition system and the one by the coil, I believe is for the electric choke.

I remember the first time that a resister quit on me,I was at work and she wouldn't go,I went inside to talk to one of the maintenance guys and he asked what I was driving,then we went outside popped the hood,he took it off the firewall and said "go to Canadian Tire buy two put one on and the other in the glove box and you will never have it happen again.He was right for as long as I had that van it never failed again.

I removed the crappy stock rubber insulator out of my 85's trans mount and replaced it with this. Much better fit and keeps the side-to-side movement at bay.
