Yardwork, BLEH! Got a bunch of mowing and weed eating done today. Took a few minutes and sprayed some satin black rust converter spray on the rust/bare floor section. Plan is to give it a much better sanding, patch anything that needs patching, and a proper coat of paint at some point before the flooring goes in. This is just to hold us over until that point.

Anyone know what this doohickey is? It looks a lot like the mechanical speed controls of yesteryear when I was into building Tamiya Midnight Pumpkin and Clodbuster RC trucks (late 80's). I'm pretty sure that's not what this one does lol but honestly I haven't the slightest clue what it's for.

That's a resistor, usually used on older points/condenser ignition systems to reduce from 12 volts down to 8 to 9 volts running. I don't believe that's an original part.


The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

Ah, that would make sense since it was originally an inline six, maybe 82 had points distributor on the L6? Not sure, but it will come off now that I know I'm not going to use it for something else. Thanks Catfish!

That's a Mopar ballast resistor. Not just for points. It was used with the factory electronic ignition starting in '73 I think it was, and continuing on for many years. Also part of the Direct Connection and Mopar Performance replacement electronic ignition kits.

You can see it pictured here. Sorry I cannot add a hyperlink at this time using "quick reply", which is the only way I can post currently.

Interesting. Wonder how and why that would have ended up on a GM van.

I got something like that for my led lights..you put in the line to make the blinkers blink. It's not just for ignition.

My sister and I were 15 months apart, I have my 2 oldest are 15 months apart, and my kids from my wife's previous marriage are 16 months apart, so I understand that completely!

Hope everybody is feeling better at home!

Because I'm stupid. Despite the title of this thread, I just assumed we were looking at a Dodge or Plymouth.

LOL No worries. We all do it from time to time. I blame those moments on the doghouse letting fumes get to my brain a little easier than normal.
