Wiring HEI on BBC

Ok. So I finally figured out that my MSD HEI distributor wasn't getting the required voltacge to do its job correctly. Now my question is where do I get the power from for this? Starter solenoid? Which post? or from the box on the firewall.

Run a wire #14 or larger from the ignition switch (IGN) terminal to the power input terminal of the MSD system.
