    Default 4ac ignition coil wiring

    As title.. I replaced the engine bay loom as the old one was chopped & think I may have it wrong. Anyone have a pic?

    So 2 wires from bay loom to +ve & -ve to corresponding bolts on ignition coil..

    Where does the wire from the distributor go? -ve on ignition coil?

    Then there's one short wire from the rectangular plastic bit on top of the coil. that links the -ve to -ve on the coil?

    Help will be really appreciated

    Cheers

    the thick black and orange wire from the car loom goes to one side of the coil resistor(the big white block on top of the coil), and the other side of the resistor goes to the coil positive.

    And as already mentioned, the wire from the dizzy goes to the coil neg, aswell as a thin black wire from the car loom whick is the tacho signal wire.

    hope this helps dude!
