Here's how a NON-HEI should be.....
Hot wire from the run side of the ing switch, into a resistance wire or a ballast resistor to the pos side of the coil.
A wire from the "I" terminal on the starter soleniod to the pos terminal of the coil.
When the key in in the start position...... the coil recieves a full 12v from the starter soleniod, which helps it to start....... after you let go of the key and the switch stops in the Run position, the coil recieves 9 ish volts from the resistance wire and allows the coil to fuction normally....... if the coil recieved a full 12v all the time it would burn up in short order..... 2-3 hours max.
