Re: 69 El Camino distributor upgrade
What I recommend to do is remove the two wires, one frm starter solenoid, the other from the bulkhead connector, from the positive terminal on the coil, tape them up, then tape both to the wiring loom above the distributor and coil. Tjhis way, the loom has not been altered, the ballast resistor and start bypass are still in place and active.
THEN, DO AS OUTLINED, TAKE A 12 GAUGE WIRE FROM THE COIL POSITIVE POST, ROUTE IT BACK THROUGH THE FIREWALL, TO THE FUSE BOX IGN TERMINAL, D O N E.
Leave the bulkhead connector alone, no need to hack it up, either.
No need to butcher up the thing, this isn't brainage stergery, folks.
