Re: Questions about an '84 5000

The ballast resistor is located behind the radiator bolted to the frame. You
have to remove the top plastic shroud thingie to see it (2-3 screws).  The
resistor is pretty big; probably 6"x4". It looks like an aluminum plate with 3
terminals coming out of it.  AS I said, it's bolted to the frame and is easy to
get to.

I hade the same fan speed problem you have, and replacing the resistor fixed
the problem.
