I bought a Tecumseh OH-160 that someone did a SSI conversion. This is similar to some of the Ed Stoller SSI conversions.
The Denso pick up is already wired into the module. But I have three wires that are not connected. I guess one goes to the coil? and one to power? not sure about the third?
These are the three wires near my thumb. Colors... red, yellow and yellow/white.
Where do I start..... to try and figure out what goes where? Help!

Those 3 wires do they come from under the flywheel?

Nope, it looks like two come from the ignition module and one from a condensor?

I think the GM module has 4 terminals on it,
1-for battery +
1- for battery -
and 2 for the pickup coil

If I remember correctly, he said the parts came from a Subaru...
There are a total of six wires, 3 on the pick up side and 3 on the other. The pick up is already wired up. I just need to know the other 3.

Here a better pic of the module. It looks like the orange wire terminal is marked "B", would that be battery? The one black wire apears to go to the grounding screw. I guess that would mean that the remaining wire goes to the positive side of the coil?
The yellow conector is coming from the pick up coil mounted on the engine above the flywheel.

It sounds like you have it figured out. That's what it looks like to me as well.
