conversion to duraspark... '62 Falcon 170 (??)

Hello forum... I'm a noob to Falcons/ Fords but I know a little about cars and forums so I'll try to make my first post as good as possibile.

I just got a '62 Falcon with what I think is a 170 6cyl (how do I tell the displacement?). Anyhow, I'm wotrking on converting it to the Duraspark II from a '79 Fairmont.

I have the distributor, cap, and rotor

I have the module (blue grommet)

I have the coil

I have most of the wiring harness between the module and the coil, and the plugwires.

I had to cut the orange wires where they go through the firewall. I'm assuming they went to either the fusebox or the switch. I'm re-wiring the whole car at the moment, so if theres a pulg back there I missed its not a big deal. Anyhow, I just thought I'd see if there was anything I had missed and if anyone knew of a DIY thread or a wiring diagram online. I haven't been able to find anything on all of the various forums I've looked at, and I haven't found a search feature on this forum.

I'll post some pics when I get home tonight :thumbup:

better check the oil pump drive, early motors have a very small pump drive shaft
