Getting signal from a Hammond M3 to Leslie

Can someone advise me as to proper way to get signal from an M3 to a Leslie 147. I already have an external preamp with 1/4 inch input jacks for the Leslie.
The only diagrams I have found on the net are similar to this one:
How to Install a Line out Jack on a Hammond M3 Electric Organ - wikiHow
It doesn't seem correct that I would tap in after the M3's amplifier just before the internal speaker effectively going through two preamp/amplifier stages.
There are a lot of wires back there and I'm new to the Hammond thing so literal answers would be more helpful than theoretical ones. (diagrams, pictures?)
Thanks.

KIT

There is a specific kit for attaching an M3 properly to a leslie.

Don't remember the kit number right now, but a search of any Hammond/Leslie website/supplier will reveal it. Probably costs about $100 and takes an hour or so to wire up. (comes with instructions)

There's probably a BUNCH of ways you COULD do it, including using your preamp, but the best way is to use the kit, if you want that SOUND

Take a look for wiring kit 6147 at someplace like bborgan.com or tonewheelgeneral.com

these type of kit will provide everything you need to connect to a 147 including the speed switch and a main/echo switch which allows you to switch between the internal speaker and the leslie...

you will also need the multi-pin cable to connect from the organ to the leslie..

PLEASE doublecheck with them that this is the right kit !
I don't want you to be mad at me if I said the wrong #....
