The blue wire goes to the '-' side of the coil, the black / white to the '+' side of the coil.

You should have + 12 V at the brown and the blue wires at the ignition module connector with the key in "run".

Inside the Dizzy the resistance across the green and red wires should be around 400 ohms (pickup coil).

Put an analog volt meter between the '-' side of the coil and ground, as you crank the engine each time the Dizzy tries to fire the coil the meter needle should deflect. You can not do this test with a DVM, you need an analog volt meter or a tach/dwell meter or an oscilloscope to see the pulses.

Throw the money you do not have at the FSM instead of at the parts you do not need.

i got mine at the local public library for free. it's a small southern mississippi library, and they are limited on material, so i'd imagine that if you are from a larger area, they'd have it.
