First you need to know which HEI you have. You will need the one with the vacuum advance can on it for your installation. If it has no can, then it is a computer-only HEI and will need to be replaced with another distributor. Once that is done, hook up the HEI to any good 12 volt source of power; this means that you do not use the original resistor wire to power the HEI.

The one you have is also computer controlled. The 4 wires ran to an ECM that controlled advance/retard functions. You need to find one that only has the wire connector that runs to the cap.
