    Wire Functions

    Red= 12 volt source
    Orange= Coil +
    Black= Coil -
    Voilet & Green= pickup coil under cap
    White= not used with HEI
    Heavy Black= Battery Neg
    Heavy Red= Bat Positive

    Hope this helps. I have my MSD hooked up on a 4 pin GM HEI but I have converted to an external coil (Blaster SS) with an HEI dust cover.

    if his help wasnt good enuf they have the diagrams on the msd website.you just have to have adobe acrobat to view them.it depends on which ignition module you have to how the hei will be hooked up to the msd box.there is a 4 pin 5 pin and 7 pin module.
