    How to basic wire 57

    diagram 1.jpgHey guy's,I need some help on how to basic wire my 57 four door Chevy to just get it to run to move it about while I work on it, just until I get the whole painless wiring harness in the not to distant future. Right now it has a 1968 307 engine, using a stock distributor with a Pertronix Ignitor kit and pertronix coil. I still have the original Generator and voltage regulator hooked-up to the battery,and i'm using an MSD 6a ignition box to get a better spark. The ignition switch I installed is not a stock 57 chevy switch. Its one from a parts store that has a wire hook-up post for acc. one for ign. one for batt. and one post directly in the center of the switch marked ST. I drew a wiring diagram,and attached a picture of my diagram. My Question is , does this wiring diagram look right? Any mistakes? Just don't want to start a fire. Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks.

    So what is your question? The "ST' goes to the starter solenoid.

    I think he was just sharing information.

    Sorry, but on my computer it's pretty hard to read anything you wrote on your drawing. From a cursory glance it looks right...except I know nothing about the Pertronix box.
