Triumph ignition

Q: I have a 1966 Triumph TT with an ET ignition system. I have a five-wire stator and the armature has three holes in the back; S, M and R. Which one is the best for timing for street use and ease to start? How do I install the five-wire stator? It seems to me the end connections must be removed to get the wire through the opening in the tube. I am thinking the tube would be slipped on, then the ends soldered on. — Andy/via email
