Ignition Control Module

I have a 1929 Model A Ford, built by someone else. I had to replace the Ignition Control Module (brain) which was a 1975 Ignition Control Module and I'm trying to find the wiring diagram. The car won't start. I am not getting a spark in the pickup and I'm thinking that the wiring is the problem.

I have replaced the brain, the pickup, distributor, spark plugs, cables to the spark plugs and I'm hoping that it's a wiring issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

How about giving us a hint as to the type/brand/size of the engine in that car? The mind reading thing still isn't working.

Sorry, I'm so aggregated about this. Since I didn't build the car, some of things I don't know.

It's a Ford,460 motor, big block.

We aren't getting any power to the pickup from the brain and coil tests that it should be a (+) and (-) but we are getting two (+)'s.

Does anybody know the color code for the pickup wiring for that year (1975) - orange, purple and black (closed unit - can't tell) or the brain color coding.
