to points, anyway I need a pic of what wires go to the coil because I think there is one missing, I didnt do the petronix install. My car is a 74tii, so the pic must be for it. I cant find my diagram.

..let me know and I can take a pick but here's a verbal-the two black wires connected together from the bundle of wires at the firewall go to the spade terminal for the points. That shoild just about do it because the rest of the wiring should be the same as it was before the pertronix. So you would disconnect the black wire from the pertronix from the negative side of the coil. There still should be another black wire that goes from the negative to the wire bundle at the firewall, down in a pair to your points, which then continues(that's the other half of that pair to the points) to your tach. You would then disconnect the red wire from the positive of the coil or the other side of the basllast resistor, depending on what kind of coil you have-either way it goes. That should do it. I can take a picture if that would help.

i just put points back in my 73 after the pertronix

was faulty. the two wires from the firewall that

nevada is talking about connect to the condenser

that attaches to the outside of the dizzy, not the

points themself. the condenser is a vital piece

when using points.

I figured he'd know that. I lumped the entire arrangement of

points and condenser together for brevity's sake, however,

you are probabaly correct in being more precise in your

wording as regards such installations-or de-installations as it

were.

....I did the same thing your doing and it would not start because the old points were just too bad. Also check your coil wire for corrosion at both ends. Maybe the Pertronix wasn't bad if it still won't start?
