Just get the correct 5 pin module, and install it in the dizzy. Hook the 5th pin of the module to the ground source or 12 v + depending on which module you have.
For the seven and eight pin modules you have to have a computer to modify the ignition signal when the advanced is activated by the 5 volt source.
I would look real hard at a 5 pin module. Use the one that retards the timing when the "R" tgerminal is grounded. You could hook that to you "bump" switch on the control.
One of the 3 types of 5 pin modules retarded timing when grounded, another retards timing when a voltage is applied, the third ( the one for ESS which you dont want) needs a computer modified signal to control timing, like the 7 and 8 pin modules.
That is why I suggested to get the 5 pin.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
