I can not tell you the wire color, for the coil, however I can tell you how it works in the circuit so you could wire it and have it operate as it should.

The + terminal on the coil gets juice when the key is on only. Then off key off, also off with the key in the accessory mode. Get a meter or a test light and probe the wire or wires you have there and see if the voltage comes and goes as described. I do not believe it will run through the fuse block, more likely a direct connect to the ignition switch.

I would wire it so the coil doesn't get juice when in ACC key posistion if your running a point system.
