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.
