From what Ive read i need to remove a resistor wire from the wiring but im still left with a different plug for the HEI coil than the previous points distributor. how and where would i get the required plug needed for HEI, and is it just a power and ground wire? also i want to add a tach which the car previously didn't have, what kind of wiring would this require? thanks for the help
As I remember this is very easy. The power wire uses a common female spade terminal and when I hooked up the tach on my '78 K-10 33yrs ago there is another terminal to hook the tach wire to. Just follow the tach manufactures unstructions on hookup. Should be easy peasy . BTW , there is no ground wire hookup. Of the two terminals on the dist, one is for power and the other for the tach. Also , welcome to the site .
