Hey , just take the positive wire from the coil you are removing and feed it to the + terminal on the HEI dist. cap.the other terminal under there is for your tachometer. If you are mounting a master kill switch in the bumper for drag racing- attatch the kill wire to the tach terminal also.
Thats it you just plug the three wire pigtail from the dist. base(pickup) to the cap and you are off.
Remember firing order is 18436572 in a clockwise direction. to find #1 remove #1 plug and have someone"bump" the engine over while holding your finger over the hole-carefull. then line up the slotted mark on the crank pulley with the big notch on the timing indicator. Good luck

A code 6 is an RPM missing signal. Your distributor coil circuit is open (or could be the coil).Check continuity with a volt meter.Check the blue/yel wire and the white one for cracks or broken,and if possible trace them to the computer for continuity. This malfuntion is a code 6 BUT car should start even so. Now to the injectors:check pulsating ground from computer,if not check wiring,if they are OK,try another computer.

Testimonial: "I already figured it out, but you did guess it correctly so I figured I would try to help your score. It was the ECM."
there should be numbers on the top of the distributor and chevy numbers there v8s like this number one is drivers front plug 2 is pass. front plug 3 is drivers side second plug back 4 is pass side second plug back 5 is drivers third back 6 is pass third back 7 is drivers fourth back 8 is pass. fourth back firing order is 18436572 thats the order the distributer hits the wires incase there are no numbers you can put the engine at top dead center just pull the number one plug and turn the engine by hand at the crank i thing its a 7/8ths bolt in the center always turn right (left takes out the bolt) put your finger on the plug hole when you fill air being pushed out then grab a long flat head screwdriver stick it in the hole and slowly turn the engine till the screwdriver is at its highest point then pull the dist. cap off and see were the rotor is pointing that is number one the next one is 8 then and so on i dont remember what way the dist. turns so you can see by turning the engine a little more the dist. will turn with it. hope this helps
