    My new electronic dissy has arrived as I am finally removing the computer
    out of the VK.Is it just basically red wire pos+ and black wire neg-coil hook up.
    Cheers all.

    yep pull the est fuse lose the est negative from the coil replace with the negative from the distributor connect the distributor pos+ to the big pos+ on the coil you've probably finished before reading this.

    Thanks for that booze
    I've got her up and running and damn it's been so long (Torrie Days) that I can't remember
    to set the timing in park or in first,maybe someone can shed some light
    Big Cheers to all.

    i used to drive it and advance it up as much as possible with out it pinging . Flaten it up a nice steep hill, otherwise disconnect and block up the vac advance and set it to 6 degree with the timing light idling in neutral will be all right, if nothing has changed where ever the idle speed is right should be pretty close assuming it was running all right b4. the module usually ends up pretty close to parallel with the oil pump usually where I start .
