Hei Dizzy How To Wire Up Questions From Noobie

Hi I have a HEI on my 350chev its in a holden car which I found out has resistance in the wiring loom from the 6 cylinder engine and standard coil it use to run..

I have only got 1 wire Red and white coming from the dizzy and the car runs fine when this is put to the battery. But runs crap when I connect to the old wires. The car is 1974.

To wire this up my mate said he thinks the dizzy should have an earth is this correct??

Whats the recomended way to wire this to my car, any advice appreciated
Ive read stuff on the dizzy but it didnt have about the hook up procedures.
Cheers Keith.

HEI needs consistant 12v. need to get 12v switched. most GM's have a ignition hot unfused circut you can tie into, or use your 6v resisted wire w/ a relay

Your "earth" or "ground" as we call it here is done through you block. It is grounded when it is inserted.
