Thank u for your time. it doesnt show me where + and- go and how to determond which wires are + and -

4,955

The coil normally has a + and/or - symbol on the terminals, as for which wire is +, get the multimeter out and check with the ignition switched on. It's not difficult.

The + is from the ignition switch, and is hot when the key is in the on position. (+ is putting electricity into the coil.) - goes to the distributor. (- takes electricity out of the coil.)
