"GM internals"??

Anyhow, the poinst distributor is easy to install and wire up. You do NOT need the goldbox.

It's been a while, but I think you just need to route the wire from the points to the coil (- side maybe?) and you're done. I'd have to look at my factory wiring diagrams to be sure.. but it's not that complex.

The Pertronix electronic ignition conversion is almost as simple.. 2 wires to the coil.
