Ok guys i need your help i know nothing about electrical and im switching my HEI for a ready to run distributor and i need to know how to wire the coil. I have 2 existing wires that plug into the HEI and there is a ground wire on the inside, the new distributor has 3 wires orange, red and black. The instructions say to wire the red to the (+) side and the orange to the (-) and the black is a ground. So do i just hook up my existing 2 wires to the (+) and (-) sides on the coil, does it matter which wire goes where?

I looked for a diagram like that on summits web site but had no luck, would the tach wire go on the (-) side of the coil.

yes, the tach wire goes to negative side.


Unless your running a ignition amplifier.
