prestolite dist

I have a new/rebuilt prestolite has the internal modual in the do i wire this...there is a white wire which looks to plug to a wire coming from a box on the firewall...a red wire which i will assume to be the hot wire+ on coil side..and a brown this - on coil?

Also if i have the internal I need a external box....the rep for the company that remanufactured this thing was no help at all....thanks

Re: prestolite dist

I have the same setup on my '77 Traveler. No, you do not need the external box on the firewall. This is how I believe mine is set up. Red wire to + coil, brown wire to - coil, and white wire just needs to be grounded out.
