need info on electonic ign mod.

Here's what I've got, chevy 350 w/HEI, the factory ignition module is being used, 1 plug is not being used, other plug with green wire and larger red wire are being use, the green wire is going into fuse box, red wire is spliced into 3 wires one is going to coil on HEI and one is going to I'm not sure where, just cant find it and a same size wire that is going into fuse box area.

My question is, I thought the module supplied voltage to the coil, that explains the wire to the coil, where could the other wire go too, and I'm sure that there is a proformance module I can use that won't require me do have an electrical degree to install,

I sure could use soom info, I did a search on the BBS, and on the web but still need some more information.

Thanks to all.
Steve

Re: need info on electonic ign mod.

You could have a later HEI. The early HEI uses only one wire - a positive feed from the battery for ignition 'on', and there is no module - it's all in the distributor. All other connections are internal to the distributor. The later HEI had 2 plugs, I think.

Maybe you could change over to an early HEI?

Sorry, maybe I didn't help much.

Good luck
Pete
