Here's a note from Pertronix about this troublesome subject:

From: "Reid/Garrett PerTronix" <prtx440@hotmail.com>

Mr. Savage,
It has been my experience that most automotive enthusiasts do not even know if there is a resistance wire in their system or not.  We plan on updating the current instruction manual to include "wiring diagrams for ballast resistor and resistance wire systems."  As long as the voltage to our power wire is above 8 volts, then there should not be any problem with hooking up directly to the coil.  The problems occur when the resistance wire condition has deteriorated and the voltage supplied to the coil is only 5 volts or even less.  At that point the power wire to our unit should be relocated to the Ignition switch side of the resistance wire.

Thanks for your interest,
Garrett Weaver
