Not much really happening here Just Daily driving 'Red' and today was Rally car Day @ Tui Brewery So got this off the Lawn :

 

She started right up & had to hunt for a set of nuts to bolt the steelies back on, the tires took some encouragement to hold air & semi-fixed the strobe lights (one wasn't responding)

1st to register (of the 3 cars that turned up)

Other than the recent Mountain out of a Molehill that was the Ballast resistor Failure nothing to report other than topping up the Gas and using it and Being a home for spiders

wonder how many $15 Parts there are that can stop a car....

Got 2x CBR43's, just in case & you know, that will mean I will NEVER need the second one...

under $30 from my local parts store vs $20 ea from Trademe

Diagram from the 'Haynes' and with the Multi-meter I'm recording 2~ Ohm & 5~ Ohm

will that be an issue, or have I got the wrong units?

appears to be the only part 'new' available

it would be a shame to pop it in & find the "next" vulnerability after-all!

there's not specs on these

Ok Bolted / Plugged it in and car runs for about 3 seconds and dies, no matter how many revs it gets 

electrical seems to cut out

odd

alrighty it was a bit of a Saga & I'm sure OS is sick of hearing about it (waasnt really much anyone could do without physically looking at it & I didn't help much)

we checked everthing else, fuel, diaphragms, sparks, wirings... then

I didn't have that (it never has)

car goes good now & may explain the dead resistors too
