    Had this running on a stand and all I had was hot to "batt" on cap and ground where marked. Now it won't run, no spark. Am I wrong that the module pictured is not connected cause it ran before without. New cap coil ohmed out fine.

    Yes that needs to be pluged in. That is how the signal gets to the coil.

  3. So did you plug it in? I'm unsure what you're asking.

    So can you tell what the brown wire is? Cause I'm assuming red-hot and black-ground. Thanks

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    That connector hooks the internals in the distributor to the coil and you hook your hot wire to the Bat pin on the coil

    Here: I copied this from the HEI service pamphlet that Napa Echlin put out in the early 80's and the factory rep gave me when he put on a class for my students in the early 80's.

    It will walk you through an HEI. It is also an excellent thing to have to troubleshoot one. I think there are eight pages to it. The first four pages and the top of the fifth page pertain to the Hei you have.

    I've been there way too many times. Glad to see you have it running.
