I connected the distributor to what I thought was the cable coming from the coil/resistor block.
In no time the car was full of smoke and the points and wiring were fried.
Luckily I had 2 new sets of points and a condenser, so made up a new cable set the new points at 20 thou gap, and went to look at the wiring diagram. This proved a bit difficult I couldn't find one with the resistor block I have on my car, so here I am for help please. I don't want to set fire to it again!!
Can anyone confirm that the wire from the distributor, fits to the connector that can just be seen on the top left of the resistance block.
I took this pic before I renovated the engine bay car is 3840 euro GTS model 1972.
As you can see things aren't going too well at the moment, and its started raining!!
