Can someone give me breakdown on where each wire goes?
The plain black should be ground. Verify it with an ohm meter. Then hook it to black on the module.
Red balck and purple black go to the other 2 wires at the dizzy.
Purple to purple black would make sense, then red black to orange.
If it ends up that they are backwards it wont hurt anything, it may just not run.
The four pin connector , you will need only a hot in run and start. Hook it to the red wire at the module. If you want the white wire to retard spark timing (which is what it does) then hook it to the wire in the 4 pin connector that is 12 v + while cranking, as pictured in the schematic. wire from module goes to coil -
Fact is stranger than Fiction
