ok simple one

I misplaced the resistor that came with my cap
I know you should place a resistor on the terminal to avoid sparks and such

So can someone tell me what size resistor do I need for 1 farad cap?

you can use an automotive light bulb say one of the 1156 's out of your tail light if you have a spare..that is how i do mine..i sodiered a set of alligator clips to a bilb and it is good to go...positivee on th ebottom and neg on the side..positive to battery side of line and neg side to the cap side...when the light goes out or really dim your done should only take about 15 seconds...the easiest place to do it is right at the bettery too...dont hold the ends of the wires though they may burn your fingers..
