The harness and ignition coil in my car are of the 80 - 81 year model variety. The stock disty has a three way connector that plugs in to a connector that comes out of the ignition control unit thing mounted on the top of the coil. This connector is circled towards the top of the pic. I need to replace the disty and the only solid one I have is of the 83 + variety that has the two wires that mount directly to the two positive and negative terminals on the front of the coil. Can I just hook it up with no other alterations?
I am a little concerned because in addition to the positive and negative leads from the main harness to the terminals on the front of the coil, there is a black and white wire from the main harness that connects to the resistor pack on the top of the coil. This is the other thing circled.
Can I run this set up just like it is in the pic?
