ok, here's the deal. 59 project: I got a 400 sitting in the chassis no body. I have no electrical connected but i want to start the engine to make sure all is good, no leaks good pressures that way if i have to remove it for some reason theres nothing in the way. My dist. has 3 wires and plugs into ignition box i have a motorcraft ignition box has 5 total wires and the coil. Where do i need to put power and wires and etc. to get this thing to start. any help or suggestions would be sooooo helpful.
If everything is all plugged together I think you could power up either the red or white wire at the module and provide 12 volts to the coil + to fire it up. I wouldn't run the coil on a full 12 volts for very long, it was designed to be about 9 volts or so in the run position.
