TBI Distributor Modifications

So I'm trying to get started on the junkyard TBI install, and with the great writeups on binder planet (as well as here) I'm pretty much on my way...

Except for the distributor. I haven't yet found a conclusive walkthrough (with pictures) of what I need to change on my distributor so that I can have the timing aspect computer controlled. I have a copy of the bustedjeep.com writeup, but the insides of my distributor look nothing like the pictures there.

What am I looking at here? How do I lock out the mechanical and vacuum advance? Which wires are for the magnetic pickup?

Is there a good writeup out there that has pictures of each step of the process for the distributor modifications?

OK, so I found a writeup on the web, apparently what I was missing is that you just pry the reluctor off of the shaft and then the rest can be disassembled.

Definitely easier than it looked.
