Nutter wire ?'s

I dont want to cut my wiring harness.

Could I just cut the plug off the dist and solder the
orange, purple and black wires there?

Then can I cut the plug off the Ign module and solder the
purple, orange and black wires there?

For some reason I just dont get it. Maybe I confused
myself from reading so many threads about it.

It isn't a matter of "if" but when the ignition module fails. I would leave or put another plug in the wires for when you need to put the new module in.

I'm glad you brought that up. Are the ignition modules at Autozone ok to use?
If not, Where is the best place to buy them besides a junkyard? I plan on
upgrading all that stuff in the future.

When you nutter does the plug on the ign mod need to be plugged in anymore??

ya, the nutter will just bypass the computer. the module will still be plugged in. I would always buy new and autozone is not my favorite place (counter people are not always the most knowledgeable at mine) but is as good as any.

I thought I read somewhere that ign mods are made poorly nowadays.

Dont know if that applies to us. I was thinking to buy two of them new
and carry one with me.

O'reillys carries 2 different ones, the "house" brand and the Borg'Warner. Both of these are made in China
. If you need one now, I would get just one. I would then use your old case and do the stealth GM HEI mod. Search Junkyarddog hei. I've been running this on my 258 for 2 years.

I would have to say that most failed ignition modules are NOT the ignition modules but the plugs. Get some jeweler files (cheap a habour freight) and files the pins in the plugs. These plugs are not water proof and corrode up from the environment we drive our Jeeps in. The best upgrade I ever made was the HEI 1 wire distributor. Good buy problems! I had the same problem with my Wagoneer for a couple of years until I figured it out. Sometimes it starts and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it starts when you let go of the key. Let it sit for 1/2 hours and then it starts. Not very dependable.

Does Motorcraft still make the modules? I need to come up with a Motorcraft # and I can check our parts house that just started carrying Motorcraft parts to see if I can get one.. Hopefully better than the China stuff!
