Doc here,

The new style solenoid will not have a "R" or "I" terminal on it.This is the secondary ignition terminal.

If you have an uninterrupted source of power to the HEI, (12 volts that does not drop out when you switch the Ignition to "Start") This wire is not used.

If you have a ballast resistor, and an HEI , (and it actually runs) Get rid of the resistor, it will run 100% better.It is not used for HEI...and if hooking up for the first time in the new body, It may not run at all.
