should have typed 12 gauge from my ignition switch to HEI ,no fuse .no resistor wire,on with the key. Is what the rep. told me about the R wire workable? The way I understand it there is only 12 V at the R term. when the car is cranking. While I'm at it a mechanic hooked up my elec. choke to the 1 wire on the alt with a diode,& to the 12 gauge wire I'm talking about at the distributor.Was this a viable hook up? To clear some of this up I'm hooked up with my old dash harness,which is only working part time.This is what is working,headlights,heater,keyed yellow to the radio,turn signals.Here is what is not working,yellow wiper motor wire,gas gauge,dash lites.Anyway this is a lot to add on to my original question,I'm thankful for your help.
