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


https://www.sparesbox.com.au/partsearch?query=Fuelmiser Ballast &type=products


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

there's not specs on these 


here : https://shopping.rewardia.com.au/Ignition_System_Ballast_Resistor_Fuelmiser_CBR41?pk=zm&pi=1330129663

and an Ebay advert for the above (Mopar Discontinued) Part# P4529795 says






REPLACES OEM 3656199 / 3874767

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

Starter begun making a grinding noises a month or so ago (And I;ve been side tracked / focused on other things for a bit : yeah

then stopped

I've never had a spare until my 1st Visit to Ron's horde the other week

so had it cleaned & checked over and half an hour to swap out & back on the road



Quite nice to drive the old Girl for a change
