Default How do I wire up a B distributor

I have a B distributor and would appreciate some help in wiring it up. There is all kinds of information on timing but canít find a picture of where the ignition switch wire goes. Thanks

There's an arm sticking out that you can adjust,on the end of that arm is a screw,it goes under it.

A "B" distributor will not work with an original Pop Out Switch. You will need a simple "off-on" switch.

Run a wire from the terminal on the outside of the "B" distributor to one terminal of the Ignition Switch. The wire that originally attached to the Pop-Out switch goes to the other terminal on the "Off-On" ignition switch. All the other wiring is the same as stock Model A.
