Also ive been hearing different things about what wire is the power and what wire is the start wire. Some ppl are telling me the white is run and red is retard. Does anyone have an upload able diagram from a duraspark car?

Red is run, white is retard. I even double checked that that's the way I had mine wired last night.

I know this is right for sure....

And to clear up the ambiguity of my last post, we used 12 volts to the module and distributor by ditching the old resistor wire, and used a ballast resistor for the coil only, even though I THOUGHT the later coil we used didn't need one.

I don't think the coil we used needed a resistor but it runs great with a resistor anyway.

On the harness that I had the white and red wires reversed(red became white and white became red) after the plug at the module box..So that is probably what is confusing some people if they kept part of the wiring harness from the vehicle..I found it rather strange that ford did that myself..
