Wiring the coil on the W5 4 Cyl.

About ready to try starting this thing up but have a dumb question? Feel stupid but is the + terminal on the coil to go to the distributor? Lots of drawings and wiring diagrams but none show the coils + and- connections. I've got the + side of the coil hooked to the distributor and am pretty sure that's right but just double checking.

Mine goes from the negative (-) to the distributor. I'm presuming that is correct, the engine starts and runs. :grinning: How close are you to getting the car running? Is this the car you picked up the parts for in Pueblo?

Good luck

Hi Tom

Thanks for the input and yes the cowl portion and a fender or two is from the Pueblo parts that I got and I'm sure glad I got them as most parts I need are usually 1000's miles away with no chance of looking at them first hand.

Come on up to Hill City, S.D. this fall to the annual meeting and you'll see this car !!!!
