Doc here,

Go to the MSD site, and click on products/Instruction sheets/your dizzy/ and read the file..

There are a bunch, so be sure you have the right system.

I have a Mallory 4248201 distributor and the "generic" instructions that are with this distributor show:

GREEN to NEG side of coil
RED through the ballast resistor to POS side of coil (your 12v ign switch wire also goes to the entrance side of the resistor)
BLACK....must be a ground wire. The diagram that shows "using an ignition ballast resistor", shows the 3rd wire as BROWN. If you're using an MSD box or similar, the wiring will be a bit different.

I tried to Google a wiring diagram for your distributor to point you to, but couldn't find one. I'm sure if you contact Mallory or maybe even Summit Racing, they could probably help you out in finding the correct diagram.
