Image of where I tapped the ignition wire in the Commodore - for the paedia

Sorry to start a new thread for this, in a bit of a hurry but want to post it before I forget.

I ran a new 30 amp ignition feed to the coil for HEI, and this is where I fed it in. It was not necessary to touch the ballast wire in this configuration, though its possible the previous owner did something funky there that I haven't yet found.

Dunno if the image is good enough to use, it's the only one that turned out even relatively non-blurry!

Cheers
B.

Don't bother having a go at the state the under dash, it's killing me trying to sort it out not being familiar with this stuff!

Now out to get busy with some leccy tape and cable ties and put it back together.

mmm is that red wire from the coil taped into the pink resistor wire to the coil , i dont think thats going to do jack , u need to completly bypass the pink resistor wire and not use it if you are useing HEI and going to the coil , that resistor wire is still working , you will over load that and cause that pink wire to get very hot , even melt and at worst cause a fire, NEVER TAP INTO THAT PINK RESISTOR WIRE if that is what it is , take power from a non resistor wire ..

The ballast wire is the dirty pink coloured one with nothing tapped into it.

The pure pink one is the ignition feed.

Your pictures are better than mine BradZed.

That's why I mostly use other people's shots.

i have a vb sle 253 i recently bought not running wont start coil good battery fine alt fine starter fine relay fine everything is wired and working under the bonnet except theirs no spark to the coil i found today that the fuse case is missing under the dash for the ignition feed so was wondering if doing what you have will solve this problem ? and if so what pink wire is it as i do not want to connect to a wrong wire and make matters worse for me .
Also in doing this do i have no need for the yellow wire on the coil as it will be the new 30amp wire connecting ?
