ignition help needed

i was wondering if anyone could help with a problem i have... here it goes...i recently put a 351w into my 85 cougar but now i can't figure out how to wire in the durasparkII ignition, i guess a wiring diagram would help but where would i find one for a project like this. I hate electrical stuff (color blind). someone please help.

My advice is to use the duraspark distributor in conjunction with an msd box. Then take that duraspark box and drop kick it as far as that piece of junk will go. The stock boxes are just not up to anything high performance. period. That and once the motorcraft unit goes out, if you have to go with a wells or gpsorenson or some garbage like that, you will be replacing it constantly.

Don't be scared of wiring up an MSD(or other box of choice), it is extrememly simple to wire up. O.K. done being a salesman now, go get a good ignition box lol

By the way, they stock distributor will be fine for most street applications so I would just keep it on there.

I don't have any way to scan one, but there should be some online digrams somewhere. Do a Yahoo or Google search...
