SOURCE: negative wire on coil to hook up tach on 1995

If you have a good look at the coil, it should still have a positive and negative sign on it somewhere. Try not let the extra wires confuse you too much. These are for the ignition module in the distributor. let me know if you need further clarification after you've had a look.

SOURCE: 1973 Ford Mustang Coil Hook-up

The wire that comes from your distributor hooks up to the Negative side of the coil. The other wire should be a switched positive that hooks up to the Positive side of the coil. It should be hot only when the key is ON or Start.

Hi!!

You may have the positive cable hooked in the wrong side of the starting selenoid or the starter selenoid is defective.

Follow the RED (+) cable from the battery, it goes to the starter selenoid wich has two terminals, change the cable to the other terminal, that should take care of the problem unless the selenoid is stuck on. Replacement runs about $15.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: Want to install a CB

  • Hi, I can help.

  • A regular 40 channel CB radio uses no more that 4 amps. On the console you have an accessory outlet that will allow 15-20 amps which is far more than necessary to run your CB. You can get a nice 12 Volt cigarette lighter DC plug that will work just fine under these conditions as well. This is what I do in my blazer and I run an 80watt 2 meter mobile with no problem. Don't confuse the accessory outlet with the cigarette lighter as they are different on your vehicle. Run the positive to positive and negative to negative. When your done you can unplug it.

  • If you want to run the CB direct to the battery you just need to get some nice copper braided 12 gauge wire in black and red to make no mistake on the power and ground. I recommend crimping a gold plated metal "O" ring on the battery end of the them wire and then you have to run them wire through the firewall. (make sure to run the wires BEFORE you connect them to the battery.) Run the wires all the way to the radio and hook positive to positive and negative to negative.

  • I don't know what CB your trying to run but if it has 3 pins on the back of it then this is a standard 3 pin power cord. Cobra, Uniden and a few other CB's use the same power cord (interchangeable.) Also only two of the three pins are even used (power and ground.)

  • It's pretty simple really. No diagrams needed really.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here and I will respond to you.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Regards, Tony

I need a wiring diagram of a 1960 ford f-100 6 cylinder ignation coil


I don't have wiring diagram for that year.
I don't mind talking to you.
The positive side of the coil gets voltage from ignition switch, the negative side of the coil goes to distributor and ignition points on a points type system.
Some makes and models, when cranking, everything gets full battery voltage. When it starts and you release the key it springs back to the run position. In the run position, voltage to the coil may go through resistor block or resistor wire, the purpose is so the points on a points ignition doesn't have to deal with full battery voltage all the time. Helps the points last longer.
Just my opinion.

Where does the wire that comes from the negative side of the coil go too?


There is usually a wire from the coil that goes to the negative side of the coil while the positive side goes to the ignition switch. Without knowing more about your car and engine, that is the best info I can provide.

I am assuming this is a Ford 8 cylinder from the 1950s.
You would have a positive wire coming from the key ( usually red ) and a negative wire going to the points inside the distributor ( usually brown ).

1993 Ford F-750. 7.0 fuel inj. PFI type. No start, has good inj. pulse,psi good etc. No spark, reman. dist.,coil and firewall ign. module has been replaced. Both modules tested ok. Wiring-Help!!! ...


Hi, I do not have wiring diagrams for the F-750, but I'm assuming the ignition systems are similar for all trhe F series trucks. Are you getting battery voltage to the coil when the key is in run and start? If not, first verify the fuse is good. If there is a noise capacitor on the positive coil wire, remove it temporarily while troubleshooting. If that cap is causing low voltage to the coil, replace it. If you still cannot get power to the coil, the problem may be the ignition switch. If you have power to the positive coil terminal, pull the coil wire out of the distributor and lay it on the engine where it has about a quarter inch gap to engine ground. Turn the key on and momentarily jump a ground wire to the negative coil terminal to see if it will release a spark. If the coil will release a spark this way, the problem is back in the distributor. Was everything in there replaced? Please let me know if you have questions.
