If it's an EBAY one, be careful. Have seen module issues on Brand new ones.
They usually have 2 wires coming out. Red to + on coil & Black to - on coil.

What are the colour of the wires please ?
If it's bosch there should be one pink ,one green
The pink one has to go to the key & HAVE 12v WHILE IN THE CRANKING POSITION & POSATIVE OF THE COIL
green goes to the NEGETIVE OF THE COIL ONLY
Ymay have another wire to the negative of the coil for the factory tachometer .. Bottoms Up

Make sure you are using a electronic ignition coil (they are completely different).

I've got a WB dizzy in my HZ. Still have the original resistive coil on it as well.
All i did was to put:
a) the black to the negative side of the coil.
b) leave the resistive wire going to the coil.
c) have a 12v supply to the red dizzy wire.

All works great.....SO FAR!

Bosch coil GT40R is designed to be used with a resistor that drops the voltage
to 9 volts (better for points).doesnt burn the points as bad.

GT40 coil is for 12 volts (Electronic ignition)
