I was taking ohm readings outside the distributor housing after it passes through the grommet and splits from 2 to 3 wires going into the vehicle harness. I had to cut the plug connector off the new pickup and splice it into the vehicle harness. I spliced with bullet connectors so can easily disconnect and reconnect them. That’s how I was able to read across both dark wires. It’s wired correctly. And I figured my decimal reading was due to the scale, thanks for confirming. I destroyed the original pickup by being careless with wire routing under the cap and letting the armature/reluctor catch one and tear it to shreds during initial startup after a spring change. I’ll dig into the article you sent. Thanks again!
