Post small block hei

trying to fire a basket case sbc I recently put together with a performance cam/lifter set. Now as I understand it, a HEI distributor with a vacumn advance does not need a module to operate, just 12 volts to the battery side of the distributor. Is this correct or no?

It's good to hear that she fired. last night I was reading the catalog at MAD Electronics and found this paragraph and thought about this post.

-Most ignition switches will have the “ignition” terminal of the ignition switch active (live) with the ignition switched “ON” and also when switched to “START,” but not all switches provide this function.* The HEI must be powered up during cranking, as well as when the ignition is switched “ON” (or there will be no spark during cranking). -

These are the words of Mark Hamilton and not mine. I've learned a lot from his electrical Tech section.
