You no longer need the wire from the starter to the coil (yellow wire??). This wire supplied a full 12-volts to the coil when cranking (hotter spark?). Once the engine was running, the "resistor" wire provided ~9-volts to the coil.

Since the HEI uses 12-volts all thetime, you no longer need this wire... Only need the feed from the ignition switch to the starter (I think Purple wire?)
