Ignition rewiring questions

Well the engine is in thank god. Now it's time for some rewiring. I went from a points set up to electronic ignition from a 91 RRC.

1. What needs to be hooked to the 3 connectors on the distributor and in what order?

2. The current coil is a resistor coil, do I need to swap that out as well?


Then I have to sort out the alternator wiring, and extend it to the other side of the engine bay.

Glad to see that the motor is in.

Can you mount the coil somewhere else?

I'd hate to see that the crappy reservoir cracks and shorts your system.

A windshield washer bottle crack and short out his coil ? What an active imagination you have Pedro.

Ok so I figured out the amp wiring on the side of the dizzy to the coil. Anyone with a early 110 that can tell me which side + or - that the white wire goes to or the white with purple? Looking at the wiring diagram I think the white with purple goes to the + on the coil but for the life of me I can sort out what the hell I do with the white wire.

Its times like this I wish Trevor the Rover whisperer was nearby.
