If you connect a positive wire to the side of the distributor you will fry stuff from that point back through the wiring.

It's a negative ground system Al. Wire from points goes to negative side of coil. I suggested + battery to + coil. Just like hotwiring it. Unhooking existing hot wire to coil eliminates his wiring from the ignition switch that might be fried or non existant.
