Your trying to wire in a duraspark distributor? Do you want to use the white wire from the MSD unit, or do you want to use the crank trigger from the distributor. The system has two ways to trigger spark from the duraspark, whit wire, is like old points system, its an electric field break... magnetic pickpup, is using the distributor... I did mine direct,
Purple wire from MSD to orange wire distributor. Green wire MSD to purple wire distributor, black wire not used. Just put #6-8 solierless female spade conctors on the MSD wires, and plugged em into the distributor housing. A zip tie harness and a little electrical tape, viola..
Basically, you have your option, pic from page 17, treats it like an old point system, pic page 18, uses magnetic pick-up
