Default Speedo Resistor

While reinstalling my engine i knocked off the cable from the speedo transducer, after inspection it appears i have only broken two resistors.

I would like to replace these instead of spending approximately 100.00 on a replacement.

As they are broken beyond testing would anyone know the resistance value, it looks like they are silver, black, black, gold/Yellow or maybe even the other way round.

Any help would be gratefully received

Looks like brown black black silver which is 10 Ohms.
If it's yellow black black silver it's 40 Ohms.

It's Brown Black Black which is 10Ω and silver is 10% tolerance, I would use 1/2 watt resistors.
