Help with distributor spark advance setup.

Hi all.

My car is missing the cable that hooks up to the distributor from the spark advance. I took a little closer look lately and also noted it looks like the housing is on backward. The bolt that holds the distributor on has twisted around to rest against the top of generator. So it's spun 70 degrees to where it should be. However inside the distributor it looks like things are pointing the right way. The place that the spark advance hooks to the distributor is on the outside rather than the inside as the manuals show. It would however be nice to have clear pictures of how the housing and inside should be pointing. I have to get a cable somewhere to hook up between the two.

Thanks to any that can help.
