New starter wiring help...
I just want to make sure I am doing this correctly. I have a 65 impala, that has been converted to hei and is wired up correctly. I am switching the stock starter out for a new high-torque mini starter. In doing such, the wiring will be different. Currently 3 wires run to the starter, a large wire from the battery (+), a wire from the ignition switch (S) on current starter, and a wire (R) that would give a full 12 volts back to the coil during startup and 0v regularly, for points distributors.
My question is this, since HEI use the full 12v all the time and is wired up correctly, I can just abandon this (R) wire for the new mini starter that accepts only a trigger wire and a direct battery (+)... correct?
I can never be too sure! Thanks!
