Hot Heads mini starter wiring


I need some advice on wiring a Hot Heads mini starter. This is just to get the engine started for now. It's a 1955 331. I would like to wire it using a 1963 Buick ignition switch. I need to know where to run the wires from the battery,coil, switch and to the starter-solenoid. Also any advice on what gauge wire to use. Thanks in advance.

Ground the engine to the negative battery cable, connect the positive battery cable to the starter (obvious), the other starter wire (solenoid) goes to a neutral safety switch, and then to the starter switch, and then to +12 volts. You can use a #12 wire.

The mini-starter doesn't have provisions for a ballast bypass, so there's no coil connection. You don't want to run a ballast anyway. Get a MSD box and a Pertronix solid state distributor.
