3 Wires on My New HEI Distributor, Am I Wiring This Right?

Proform Parts 66964 - Proform Ford HEI Distributors - Overview - SummitRacing.com

The link above is for the distributor I just purchased. My truck is a 1967 model F100 with the old points setup. I'm in the process of installing a 351W and I am trying to convert this over to HEI..... but there is no diagram whatsoever that came with the distributor. One wire is blue, another black and the other is red. I am thinking that:

Red goes to the the positive side of the coil as well as the 12v feed such as the ignition switch?

Black is a ground?

Blue goes to the negative side of the coil as well as the tach feed.



Does this seem correct? Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks!

That just looks like a Duraspark 2 dist.
You will need a DS2 IGN module and the wiring harness between the IGN module and the Dist.

Here is some wiring info.
Take the cap of the new dist and see what is inside it under the rotor.
Just a magnetic pickup?
The harness you will need is a junk yard item.

thanks for the info. i actually switched and now have this exact same distributor. but the damn thing did not come with any instructions. do i simply need to ground the black wire to the chassis or block? power to the red, can i go straight to the battery or do i need to go to the ignition switch? and the other is for the tach correct?
