How do you conect the "bottle " style coil to the current distribor? This has me puzzled. I know where and how to conect to the Distribor. But what type wire do you use? Copper core sparp plug from The new coil to the distribor?
I guess the quetion I have is: what kind of wire from where the coil goes to the distribitor? ANY ONE got a pic?

I've heard of people doing it by drilling out the old square coil - I'd imagine running a solid metal conductor from the post at the top to the old coil's firing contact'd do it.

I was going to but found a replacement on Ebay for $26 delivered... I kept the old one to gut and try if this one fails.

I would use a solid core wire with HEI style boots on either end. You can usually buy them separate at most auto part stores.

After you gut the front coil you should still have the spring thing on the bottom that is what you want to solder the wire from the side mount coil on to. Sorry I have no pics.

That sound good. I have some wire at work we use for high voltage testing, AN "ARC" test, to see if electrical parts arc, It is a stainless steel wire that has a real flexible coating that is silicon based. I am going to use that, and solder as you say. I just bought a NEW carb, going for electronic ignition soon... that should make her spit fire..
Thinking about having the head milled and modding the cam... I just can help it... LOL

I read once where you could take an air pump from a Chevy 454 and make a supercharger.
