Once and for all, Pertronix to coil hookups:

Pertronix RED (PR) wire -
Pertronix BLACK (PB) wire -

Stock or any "non-internal resistance" coil (Bosch "red" coil, etc.):

1. Leave stock + wires "as is" and connected to + side (15) of coil.
2. Connect (PB) wire and green tach wire to - side (1) of coil.
3. Run a red wire from the fuse box resistance wire connection and connect it to the (PR) wire.

ANY aftermarket "internal resistance" coil (Bosch "blue" coil, etc.):
1. Leave stock + wires disconnected from + side (15) of coil (no longer used).
2. Connect (PB) wire and green tach wire to - side (1) of coil.
3. Connect BOTH the (PR) wire and a red wire run from the fuse box resistance wire connection to the + side (15) of the coil.

Make sure to use plastic "feeler gauge" to properly "clearance" (.035" - .040") the center "pole piece" from the adjustable trigger amp in the distributor!!!

That's it!!! :D
