can anyone give a basic explanation of how to wire a 350 with hei distributor............
all new wires and no lights with a pushbutton......starter switch...
just enough wiring to start and charge .........i would greatly appreciate it thanks.
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 !
