On a GM HEI there are 5 Spades on the Dist cap
3 into the back {or closest to the dist } & 2 further away
the 3 in the back go to the Dist.

The other 2 1 is the power the other 1 is for the tack if you look closely it will say on it tach.

To "just get it running" hook the power wire to some power then it is live .

Keep in mind that it will stay on until the power is interrupted.

Then all you will need is a jumper wire to the starter to crank it over .

Assuming you have a battery cable going to the starter.

Does this help?
