Would I be able to talk you into giving an explanation in real-world terms of what's involved with that? It's not that I have no experience with mechanics, but quite honestly, autoshop (and owning dirtbikes) in high school was my last real experience, and that was 16 years ago.
What's this resistor, and how/where/when is it installed, etc.?
Your cryptic post makes it sound easy to do, is this true?
LOL, a resistor is not mechanical , it goes on a circute board to restrict the flow of electricity. They have 4-5 color bands indicating there resistance and tolerance, I never seen and electronic device without them.
