Wire my stewart-warner tach into a CHEV HEI ignition


Most HEI dist are labeled on the coil cover where the module/ power plugs in on the side of the cap It should be the only unused space there , unless you had a factory tach. You will need a plain female spade on you tach input wire and it should plug right in

Wiring an hei distributor


You shouldn't need a spark box because thee coil is located in the dist. cap. You need to run a 12v switched power source to the side of the dist. cap that is marked dist. if it isn't maked it is the term. that is on the front right of the conector pad. the one on the left is for hooking up a tach.

Need wireing diagram to change 72 nova over to hei distributor


Hey , just take the positive wire from the coil you are removing and feed it to the + terminal on the HEI dist. cap.the other terminal under there is for your tachometer. If you are mounting a master kill switch in the bumper for drag racing- attatch the kill wire to the tach terminal also.
Thats it you just plug the three wire pigtail from the dist. base(pickup) to the cap and you are off.
Remember firing order is 18436572 in a clockwise direction. to find #1 remove #1 plug and have someone"bump" the engine over while holding your finger over the hole-carefull. then line up the slotted mark on the crank pulley with the big notch on the timing indicator. Good luck
