New member needs advice about electrical resistance.
In front of me is a wiring diagram for 1956-59 Square Four.It clearly shows a resistance symbol within the ammeter. Wire going to and from
the ammeter to pole position six and seven of the head lamp switch. The fitted ammeter has no facility for this wire and I suspect if I buy another ammeter it will be identical to the one already fitted. Resistance prevents voltage spike caused when lights or other components are suddenly used.How do I introduce a remote resistor ? Product familiar owners will know that the instrument console panel is secured by two dome headed
screws. Mine has a third fixing, in the middle of the two dome head screws which does nothing to secure the panel but does screw into a cylindrical
heavy body which contains a blown light bulb. It is not visible from the outside but I wonder if a previous owner fitted it to absorb spike.
