Thanks all!

well now, I've been gone all day (the Mister to a Pulmonary Function Test today).
Let me get caught up and I'll go through my manual to see what I can find.
Have you already searched the forums for this topic?

Those are some help. But the issue is I want to change my 76 ignition switch (very similar to a 76 A body) to a 77 and up ignition switch. These are the ones that the connector is a half moon shape. The number of wires does not match LOL.


Using a mish mash of my Haynes manual and a 76 FSM I am pretty sure yellow to yellow and heavy red to heavy red should get it to turn over. But I am unclear if that will feed the coil or if the dark blue is need to feed the coil. I am using a Pertronix HEI module for ignition box.

I have searched the forum and google all the internet. I have not found exactly what I need. A lot of stuff on the early style connector. Not so much on the 77 and up. :)

Dark blue is the switched ignition power anything that needs power in the "run" position needs that.

I leave the rest up to you since I have no 77 vehicle nor 77 vehicle books.
