For anyone looking - Saturn Surplus has NOS coils for $48.50. These are the older style coils w/ the external ballast resistor - which brings me to my question.

My truck had the newer style coil (internal ballast resistor) so I'm not sure how to hook up this replacement as I have nothing to go by. The ballast resistor has (2) wires, I assume that one goes to the (+) terminal and the other goes to the (-) terminal on the coil but I could not find this information in the online manuals to confirm. I just wanted to know for sure before I potentially kill a new coil - you know the saying, never assume anything...

Also, one resistor wire is red and the other is black, I wonder if this resistor has to have the correct polarity? I wouldn't think so, but then why did they make the wires two different colors?
