Re: wire for hei dist???

For some reason, I don't think GM ever put a fuse in the ignition circuit that powers the coil, at least I haven't seen a schematic yet that had one. Anyway, If you connect the coil wire to the ignition terminal at the fuse box, be aware that the Turn Signal/BackUp Lights fuse will now be protecting the circuit. Shouldn't be a problem, but something to know.

Personaly, I like to crimp a terminal on the new 12 ga coil feed wire and insert it into the main firewall connector where the original resistor wire for the coil was installed. Saves drilling a hole in the firewall to run the new wire to the fuse box, too.

Re: wire for hei dist???

The connector is below the master cylinder. It's a bit of a tight fit. The new coil wire goes on the row closest to the connector attach bolt in the cavity next to the orange wire that powers the heater motor. It's a two piece connector. You will be looking at the connector on the right (pass) side. If the original resistor wire is still in this cavity, it will be a white, woven insulator, with orange and purple tracers. You can get by using a standard female terminal on the new coil wire, just make sure it's still inserted all the way after you bolt the connector to the firewall. The old terminal will look like it's split up the middle part way. You can remove the old connector by using needle nose pliers and squeezing the terminal slightly. That gets the small tang out of the way so you can slide it out from the wire side.

Hope that makes sense!
