While measuring the Ohm readin

While measuring the Ohm readings of my Boxer wires, I have noticed that 11 have brown extenders, with zero Ohm readings, and one has a "black" extender, with 5K Ohms reading. I have recieved two "new" ones, both black, each reading 2.5K Ohms. The wires themselves have Ohm readings of about 1K to 2K Ohms, depending on lenght.....this seems normal to me.

However, the "new" extenders have a 2.5K Ohm reading, vs the zero reading of the brown ones.

Is the 2.5K Ohms OK, or should I keep searching till I get the "brown" ones, with zero Ohms?

Huh? That is bizaar? I have

Huh? That is bizaar? I have black ones on my TR and they all had 0 resistance. This could get quite confusing in a hurry. I think I would get some with zero ohms...and I may have a few left over with zero...be glad to send you a couple. Just let me know.

There are many threads on this

There are many threads on this at F-chat...I can say from experience, the original red extenders on my 328 measure 0 ohms.

Jeff,

Thanks, but the exten


Jeff,

Thanks, but the extenders for the Boxer are different than those of the TR. The 2 on the left are from the Boxer.......the right being the TR.

I have 11 brown extenders, with zero ohms each. The 12th extender is black, with 10K Ohms. The 2 new ones that I ordered came as black, with 5K Ohm. I want to get another brown one.

The black TR extenders are zero Ohms.

I can't seem to upload the picture.

Henry, you may wish to check o

Henry, you may wish to check on the following advice; but when I was having a major done on my previous 78 308 GTS it had tan looking extenders, and my mechanic told me they were original to the car, and known to be rather poor quality and easily burned through. He recommended upgrading to the later black ones, as they were much more reliable. I have no idea what the ohm readings were on either. Perhaps JRV could comment on the veracity of my mechanic's recommendation....

Here is the picture I wanted t

Here is the picture I wanted to upload earlier. The two on the left are from the Boxer, while the right one is from the TR.

The "black" Boxer is 5K Ohms, while the "brown" Boxer extender is zero Ohms.

I would like to get a "brown" extender.

Boxers don't use the resis

Boxers don't use the resistor connectors because they use resistor wires. An ignition system doesn't normaly need both. Resistor connectors were used on earlier ignition systems that used solid core wires predating resistor plugs.

Regards, JRV
