GROUNDS
A poor ground connection can cause many frustrating problems. When
a wire is specified to go to ground, connect it to the chassis. Always
connect a ground strap between the engine and chassis. Connect any
ground wires to a clean, paint-free metal surface.

If your vehicle has a ballast resistor in line with the coil wiring, it is not
necessary to bypass it. This is because the Ignition Control Module
receives its main power directly from the battery.
