This thread might be helpful my HEI dist is also run through a relay as is mentioned in the last post on this thread. They have to have a constant supply of at least 12 volts

Thanks I see the light. so I can cap orange wire and just run purple wire direct to electric choke on the carb. What type relay r you running on your HEI?

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / New HEI distributor and now this
« on: July 25, 2017, 08:23:41 PM »
installed a new HEI distributor on the BBC while getting the timing set I noticed a little smoke coming from this "part"(white insulator block thing) not sure what it's called exactly but  it was very hot to the touch . I know it has a orange wire from the starter a purple wire from ignition  then purple wire goes to electric choke on carb. so I took orange and purple wire off the white block aka "part"  and went to fire the engine, the engine would fire but not run. so I guess my questions are. is this common for this to get hot  or is it cause my new distributor. and  what would be the best fix since when I disconnect wires from the block my engine will not run. The old ignition was a Mallory "marine" point style

replacing plugs on my buddy's boat 2 of the plugs had a good amount of oil on them. is this pretty common or is he looking at something worse. also does he need the vacumm hose from the valve cover to carb or can he eliminate them and put breathers on?
