But that was 75 years ago.

Fyi. Make sure both ignition is on and kill switch off, haha. All wiring is done through my stock harness. Pink -> Pink Violet-> Vlt/Blu White -> Wht/Blk. I also added a ground wire from the screw that holds it in place to the black wire, though it was unnecessary. Installed per the manual, then retarded ignition to 28 degrees by rotating roughly .030" CCW

I couldn't find a thread saying anyone used the stock connector or how they did. So often people don't close the loop online, just wanted to give the complete solution to everyone.

So, just three wires? Seems easy enough.
