I replaced the existing points distributor with this electronic unit and it connected it up. Put it in the same basic position as the old unit and it when I turned the starter it fired right up. Adjusted the timing and it seems a lot smoother throughout the rev range than before. The distributor did get very hot though but I reckon it is because I have a coil which is less than 1.5 Ohm. I have put a ballast resistor in series with the coil for now but ordered a 3 ohm coil in the mean time. It should be perfect with the 3 ohm std coil. No more burnt points.
