1983 spider veloce no fire

hi all, i need some info or a pic(colors) of the wiring that go directly to coil. I have the wiring diagram (thanks to papajam). but it does not show the actual connections made at the coil (positive and negative side). i do not know where the wires coming from the ignition ECM go to. thanks all

Fat white wire from the ignition control box goes on the + terminal

Green with black trace wires go to the + on the coil

Have to disagree with you on this one, Tifosi. There should not be any white wires on the coil positive terminal. The fat white wire goes on the coil negative and, if I'm not mistaken, is the wire through which the igntion ECU makes and breaks the coil primary circuit.

Yep, The green and black wire should be the only one touching the + terminal. Be sure to ground it's shield wire, as it's #1 on the ignition ECU connector... (make important serious face)
