Cruise control resistance wire resistor

Greetings, I have a question on an 82 Camaro cruise control setup. There is this resistance wire in the setup and the resistor was previously replaced. Well the lead broke off at the ceramic so now I have to replace it. GM calls for a 23.3 Ohm resistor but doesn't specify any watt. The one installed was a 24 ohm 10 watt. I can't find a 23.3 Ohm 10 watt resistor anywhere, even online. Can I use a smaller watt resistor safely?

Mouser Electronics has several 24 Ohm resistors in that wattage range.

Not sure if this link will work but it should take you right to them...

Hope this helps...

Thanks for the link to those. I wasn't finding them while searching on Mouser before. I went ahead and ordered some 24 Ohm/10 watt from them. I was still wondering though if a smaller watt could be used or really what the specified watt for the cruise is. Since I didn't replace it the first time I'm wondering if a 10 watt was used because it was convenient.
