    The wire from the distributor goes to the NEG post.
    The other 2 go to the POS post.
    One will be from the R post on the starter solinoid, which gives the coil full battery voltage on start up.
    The other will have a ballast type resistor on it giving the coil around 6 volts while the engine is running.
    the resistor has to be there because full battery voltage all the time will burn up the points.
    I did not think that any one had points on a rig any more.
    An HEI unit will drop right in and is only about $30 at a salvage yard.
