Hello! Let's see if we can can work together to get to the root of your question!

Battery posiitve has to go to the posiitve post of the coil. The negative side of the coil should go to the distributor. With electronic ignition, the distributor may have a second wire that goes to an igniter. Or does this engine have points and condenser? If so, the distributor will only have one wire, which goes to the negative on the coil. The third wire would go on the posiitve side of the coil, so you would have two wires on the positive side of the coil. Or use the link below, to change your ignition over to electronic.
