If it's black and about 2" square you may be referring the terminal box. If it is a remote igniter dizzy you can get it working with a GM HEI unit for about $15-$20. You will need an EI coil to go with it. The points coil will overheat.




Under the cap, does it look like this one?...




...or this one?

it looked like the first one so would you happen to know a part number the gm hei and what kind of coil

Go to Kragen,tell them you need a HEI module for a 77 Chevy Camaro. Cost bout $15. Coil, youll need an electronic one off a Datsun that came stock with electronic ignition. It will be wider & a bit taller than a points coil.
