That's dead easy!, you just need to wire the coil to the distributor as per the factory wiring diagram, then put a +12V supply on the coil positive terminal.

Ensure fuel supply (power to electric pump).

Crank the engine, and away you go!

To stop it, remove the +12V from coil positive.

DON'T FORGET AN EARTH CONNECTION FROM ENGINE BACK TO BATTERY NEGATIVE TERMINAL.
