[TR] TR6 low tension wire

 Sure, it's easy to fabricate a zero resistance wire.  At least within the tolerance of the $10 DVM's H-F sells.  ;-)

But seriously, through 72 the TR6 has a 12 Volt coil (internally ballasted) and there is no intentional resistance in the coil wiring.  From 73 onwards the used a 6V coil with a ballast wire,  But it is not the wire between the coil and distributor so in either case a plain copper wire is used.

If you can fabricate a zero resistance wire you could sell the patent and 
make a fortune 👏

Question:  Is the low tension wire from the coil to distributor something special?  Triumph TR6 with points.  Is it a resistor wire or something?  Or can I fabricate a wire without resistance and use that?
