You could, but make sure that it will shut off with the key. If the 12 volt sourse is on the charging side of the circuit, it won't shut off.

If you can find the resister wire, just strip it back about a foot or so, and you should have 12 volts.

HEI distributor

As mentioned, the HEI has to have a full 12 volt switched power source. Tap it right from the ignition switch.
