Re: Basic wiring of a test stand:

Basically what i'm trying to do now is wire up a test stand so as to be able to run a motor equipped with an HEI ignition. At this point all of the gauges are mechanical---due to already having them in posession and trying to be expedient as well as frugal; Electrical gauges may come later.

So, essentially what i'm wondering is how to wire this ignition switch:



to the starter:



i know that the positive battery cable needs to go to "e", but i'm not sure about the rest.

1) also, what size wires to use and do i need to use fuses or links?

2) what wire would go to the HEI cap from where?

Re: Basic wiring of a test stand:

The 'S' on the solenoid is start (crank). The 'R' is to feed 12 volts to a breaker point ignition or to supply power during crank on vehicles like the 67 camaro whose IGN circuit does not remain hot during crank. 'R' is unused if your using HEI and your IGN terminal on the ignition switch remains connected to the BAT line of your switch. I'd do a continuity check between your BAT(a) terminal and your IGN (c) terminal while your turn the key to crank just to be sure you can live without 'R'.

Re: Basic wiring of a test stand:

There is no ground required. The switch controls power only.
