You can download the actual installation instructions form the MSD Website at:


I am not sure what you are hooking it to so here is a general hookup of the wires.

Red 12ga - To battery (+) positive.
Black 12 ga - To battery (-) negative.
Red 18 ga - To ignition key switched 12 volts (remove original wires connected to coil (+) and connect to MSD Red 18 ga wire)
Orange 18 ga - To coil (+) positive. This should be the only wire attached to coil (+).
White 18 ga - Not Used.
Black 18 ga - To coil (-) negative. This should be the only wire attached to coil (-).
Violet/Green - Connect to magnetic pickup distributor. Note: if Violet/Green wires are used then the white wire will not be connected.
