    I've diagnosed a bad ballast resistor on my Dart, but not sure what ballast resistor I should ask for at the parts store - it's a '63 Dart with a 318, electronic ignition with 4 pin ECU and single ballast resistor.

    Not sure what year/model vehicle the ignition came out of.

    Thanks

    My 1980 Dodge 3/4 ton pick-up with a 360 has the two connector ballast resistor and only 4 wires off the ign. control box.

    Just use the stock replacement ballast resistor for the car. I have done quite a few points to electronic conversions and I just used the stock points ballast resistor. They run fine.
