HEI Distributor
#1
Hello all, 1973 351 Cleveland here, I am doing a few mods to my engine and decided to do away with points. I bought a new HEI with the coil inside the cap. Now.... what do I have to do as in the way of mods to install this. Somewhere I read there is an in-line fuse or convertor that has to come out as it reduces voltage? Thanks

It is a resistance wire(the one to the + side of your old coil) it drops the voltage. The HEI needs 12 volts.

If you have the factory tach you have more work to do. I can't tell you exactly what but I am pretty sure the 'tach' port on the HEI won't work with our stock tach.

Hi there, there is no tach, although I would like to install on on the hood when I get the $$$$. Thanks, the people who sold me the distributor said it is very simple to install. Is there a video somewhere or similar anybody has ever seen to help simply the install? The only part which has me concerned is the wire to the switch, not too sure where or how to do that. Thanks again
