The wires should be Green for low speed and white high speed. The white wire connects to the end of the resistor which also connects to the fan motor. The green wire is between the connector and other end of the resistor. This is per the later model year wiring diagram.
The later fan resistors were a metal tube clipped to and parallel to one of the fan motor supports. The resistor you ordered will work if a mounting bracket is made to not only hold it, but to also help dissipate heat.
The wire connections should be mechanically secured, either through the holes in the resistor tabs or improvised by using the crimp portion of crimp on lugs or crimp ferrules. Crimps should - must be soldered. Common electrical solder may - will melt with a lot of fan use. Silver solder is best for its higher melting temperature, you should be able to find it in small packages at a hardware store or get a piece from a jeweler or welding shop. You might get away with common solder, if the crimps are really mechanically solid and will solidly hold together without solder.
