Crude Starter pls help
1 Attachment(s)
Ive stripped the wiring loom out of my sierra but still want to be able to move the car and run it once a week. I think my diagram is ok just the be able to get the car running but am stumped as to where the -ve from the coil goes (on my series 1 landy it goes to the points) so does it go into the dizzy (3 pins on the side) or does it go onto the side of the carb (Pierburg 2E3). Please help me sort the problem.

Many thanks

Thats alright, decided I would brake it if I tried to bodge it so started to remove bits, now need to get a new gasket for the rocker cover (motor factor?) it was a bit split.
