Aftermarket Electronic Dizzy/Mopar

Evening Folks!

Installing a aftermarket "Pro Comp" electonic Dizzy in my 65 Fury III that I just stuffed a 440 in. This Dizzy has 2 wires coming out of it and is of the "self contained" style - ignition module is "on board" and just requires a coil. The manufacturer's instructions say to simply hook both wires to the coild and it's ready to run? Common sense tells me that the RED wire from the Dizzy goes to the + side of the coil and the BLACK wire from the Dizzy goes to the - side of the coil. Does that sound correct? Anyone have any experience with these style Dizzys? I bought it from 440 Source but it came with no "wiring" instuctions.

Another thing I noticed, using a 12 volt test light, with the key on, I get power from both the + and - sides of the coil? Is that right?

I am electronically challenged - any help I can get is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Never used that one..... seems like one wire would be switched power from a 12v source, and another for a tach?
