I know this is right for sure....

And to clear up the ambiguity of my last post, we used 12 volts to the module and distributor by ditching the old resistor wire, and used a ballast resistor for the coil only, even though I THOUGHT the later coil we used didn't need one.

I don't think the coil we used needed a resistor but it runs great with a resistor anyway.
Building cars is EASY, building cars right is a mite bit harder.

On the harness that I had the white and red wires reversed(red became white and white became red) after the plug at the module box..So that is probably what is confusing some people if they kept part of the wiring harness from the vehicle..I found it rather strange that ford did that myself..
