For the tail and brake lights you should not need "load resistors". You
may need them for the indicator lights if you use the original style
bi-metal flasher relay. You have to make certain though that the wiring
and especially the contacts and fittings are perfectly clean and make
If you are going to use the load resistors you need two for each double
filament bulb as there are two power leads.
