    '79 distributer

    i dunno know if i even have that spelled right, but ihave a 79 and i dont know where to put the three wires that come off of the thing. If anyone knows where i can get a wiring diagram with color codes and stuff, that would be appreciated. its got a plug on the end that is connected to the three wires inside the distributer and i just need to know where each one goes...

    thanks matt

    If its like mine its an HEI distributer, the 2 wires on the right of the distributer goto the battery and then the one on the other side goes to the Tach.

    so your saying just run the two wires on the right.....from looking at it from the top,,,i assume,,... run those to the switched powersource,,and the last one..probably green, to the tach?

    the three wires to speak of plug into the cap. Then you just need to provide a switch 12 volt power source and then you can plug in a tach.
