    the condenser is inside the distributor and the hold down clamp grounds it the wire goes to the insulated lug going out of the distributor along with the points wire and is connected to the positive side of the coil the negative side of the coil goes through the ignition switch to the negative side of the battery.this is a link to my post on the subject I got allot of good info from the people on this forum thanks to all.

    The condenser is on the inside of the distributor, connected to the wire from the coil (+), and grounded to the body of the distributor.

    Or did you intend -6 to mean negative ground? 6 volt systems are normally positive ground, hence my answer above.

    When installing a new coil in a -6v system, which terminal of the coil is connected to the distributor condenser?
