If you have a power box mounted on your firewall thats where the wire goes. Don't hook up the distributor to your alternator directly.

You have described the system I run in Late model / modified in the late 70's. A hotwire ignition switch, starter push button.

Links for HEI info (#1 ) and alternator wiring (#2 ).

Note: With 12 volts to the HEI coil, the wire from the switch / start button wakes up the starter drive.

That's the name of that tune !

PM me your email address and I'll email you a schematic. It's for an MSD 6AL with distr. but it will be close.
