I'm still confused or making this bigger than what it is. The truck (80 yota p/u with 20r) had a box ontop of the coil that said ignitor. It had two wires coming out and went to the distributor with a two prong clip. The new motor and distributor (76 celica 20r) has a terminal for a wire (no clip or anything) but I don't know where (on the coil or what) to attach the wire. Which one is the "igniton coil check terminal" on the coil? The inside of both distributors are completely different looking. How do I know that it doesn't have contact points? If it does, then where does the wire go. I just want to make sure I put it in the correc spot before screwing something up. I haven't even tried to start the motor yet. Not sure if it even runs. Just crossing my fingers.
If its a contact distriibutor it will only have one wire on it and that one goes to the coil negative.
Disregard that wire -hook everything up and attempt to look for spark while cranking it over-if your getting fire it up.
BTW what color is this wire?
