Unless the coil requires a resistor (and I think most after~market HEI's with external coil DO NOT) Your wiring will be the same as your stocker HEI.
Does the new one Have a "BRAINBOX" or is it all contained within the distributor?
Should Be A "plug and pray " Swap out!
Check to be sure your plug wires will handle the new high tension spark, and your plugs are gaped accordingly. and you should be gold!

I have a small body MSD HEI in my 40 Ford coupe with a SBC. I prefer it to a stock GM one because it has both the adjustable vacuum advance and mechanical advance.
About $250 from Summit ........

the plug ends may be differect......might have to look in the junk yard and get the parts.

HEI Wiring Please help
HI, guys this is my first post. i own a 64 Chevy 2 i have rebuilt a 350/350 combo the engine is bored .06 im running vortech heads and an edelbrock performer intake with a edelbrock 650 cfm carb. I have a pretty good cam setup not the best but its good for now. My question is: i would like to swap my HEI distributor to an external coil HEI because its quite tight by my firewall. i need to know if there would be any wiring changes (other then the coil). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
