Um, I am not sure what you are asking, but there is a resistor bypass wire that goes from the starter solenoid to the coil. The reason is during starting not enough power gets to the coil through the resistor. After start, the resistor power source is enough, and the direct connect power (from solenoid) would burn out the coil.

There are 4 terminals. two big ones: one to battery and one to starter. can go either side

two small ones: one from ignition and one to coil. hook the ignition one up first. If you get it wrong, solenoid will not click. Then switch and hook the coil one there.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Sounds like you have one of 3 things going on

#1 cylinder location on 1968 volkswagon bug


As you are looking at it from the front of the vehicle, the firing order works from LEFT to RIGHT, 1-2-3-4-.

You don't have a distributor per se, but rather an ignition coil with 4 wires.

I hope this helps good luck

1967 ford f100 firing order for spark plugs has 1968 390 v8 aoutomatic


According to my Chilton book the firing order for that motor is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. Cylinders are numbered 1 through 4 on the passenger side from front to back. Cylinders 5 through 8 are the same on driver's side. The distributor,on the front, turns counter clockwise. The clips to hold the cap on should be at 12 and 6 o'clock and #1 piston is the first one to the driver's side of the back clip. Hope this helps

Have you checked the starter solenoid? Replace this and see if you're getting fire then. They are usually suspect and the first link in the chain between your battery and the distributor.
