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

Order is 18436572. Put the timing mark on the crank at 0 and the rotor should be pointing either to the firewall or the front of the engine. If at the wall, turn the crank one more time and it is now pointing at the #1 wire position on the distributor.
left side cylinders are 1357 right, 2468 wire order is in the direction the rotor turns when cranking.
