    Hello..... can anyone out there tell me how a Ford control module should be wired. Im refering to the metal box style like used in the late 70's I have a bastard engine swap that im working on, and dont know if wiring is correct or not.
    Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I put electronic ignition from a 79 cougar on the 351 that was in my 68 mustang.I just sold the 351 to a guy I work with so if he still has it Ill go look at the wires on the box .I did the swap 9 years ago and I dont remember.What are you playing with?

    Hey Chris, thanks for the reply. Ive got a 1954 Nash Metropolitan, with a 2.3 Ford in it. The control module that was in it got all messed up a few months ago....(long story) anyway.... i accidentally put the wrong color one back in it, and (another long story) anyway.... i think it is supposed to have the blue grommet module in it. This converston was done by the previous owner, so i dont know how he wired it, but im going to redo it.
    Anyway.... let me know what you can find out. Thanks TORI

    Are you talking about the big module out side of the dist or the one inside?
