What is the color of wires to the pin connection to wire a GM dist module to a ford 2300 dist.

orange to W terminal
brown to G terminal
power to C terminal splice to coil + use a resistor if you don't have a E-coil
coil neg to B with a GM capcitor from a HEI ign. in line. hope this helps

Does the resistor go inline between C & + of coil?
Also the GM cap goes inline between B & ign. switch?

Thanks, for the help. I tried the TIF dist and you get no Timing advance from low RPM's.

run your ign feed to the module then simply splice a wire with the a resistor in it to the coil +

run a wire from the coil neg to the B terminal of the module install a capcitor from an hei system in line on that wire

I run the T.F.I. you just set your advance or timing @ 36 deg @ 3000 RPM some eng. combos won't like that much advance some will want more . if its not runnin hot after a few laps turn it up till you get the juice your lookin for.

hope this helps

So you like the TFI unit.
I have also heard about some type of retard off the starter sol for startup.
I have been setting the timing at 36-36
@ 3000 and it is not getting hot.
I was just not seen the timing stay
constant, but from what you said it is OK.

if you are having start up problems you probably have a problem somewhere else .normally mine will only turn a split second before she hits. either system will lock your advance I think the H.E.I. will run more RPMs. I twist the T.F.I. @ 8500/8700 no problems

hope this helps
