the 70 velle has a res. wire to coil..if running hie you have to bypass it..
as it drops volts to around 9v

I most times tap into the wire at the firewall bulkhead connector.. soldering in a splice.. leaving the old wire intact..
run the new wire and tape up the old one and wiretie it..
if your hei /etc fails you can drop the points dissy back in and untape the wire and down the road you go.. this is a plus with the drop in electric conversions.. as when they fail you just drop the points back in and go..
and murphy's law is because you have a back up. you'll never need it..
