I have a 1978 Chevy Luv, manual trans, 4 cyl engine.

I research everything before I ask and could not find pictures or information on two things.

W I'm looking to swap the original points distributor to an electronic ignition dist. I have the distributor that has the module inside the cap, do you keep the resistor in its place connected?

Also, I'm looking for the correct location to connect the battery ground wire. I stopped to look at one truck and it didn't look right. It was connect on the passenger side engine block, just in front of the starter.

The ground location sounds correct, large black and yellow wire bolted down low on the block.

I think I removed my resistor but I'm not sure Will check thru my build thread and let you know

I put in the pertronics electronic ignition and it needs 12 volts so the resistor went by by (saved the points and resistor just in case)
