THEN - 1973 OZ Mini originally had points dizzy, remote solenoid, inertia starter...


Remote Solenoid was triggered directly from ignition switch by W/R to wide blade.  Solenoid also fed 12 volts to coil on starting from narrow blade


NOW - 123 Dizzy, Pertronix coil, starter/solenoid unit.


Understand that new solenoid requires more power than remote type, so Relay (triggered by WR) of power B from Solenoid main terminal & back to solenoid BR.  (have relay installed)


QUESTION - the triggered BR also goes to wide blade on new solenoid CORRECT?


ALSO -  


a)  Since no points etc., I can wire coil directly from ignition keyed hot side of terminal on fuse block  CORRECT?


b)  No need to run any wire from the new solenoid to the coil  CORRECT?
