Question about hooking a msd blaster coil to a msd dizzy

Hey guys i have a quick and i hope a easy question,,, I have a pn 8360 msd dizzy and a blaster 2 coil and im having trouble getting fire out of the coil.
BTW Im NOT running a msd 6al box..

The dizzy has 3 wires off it. red, orange, and a black. what wires from the dizzy hooks to the coil???
and also what all other wires should be running to just the coil?? the blaster 2 is just the round style coil... everthing on the net show how to hook up a msd box,, and not a msd dizzy to just the coil... any help would be great thanks

Test the 12v feed to make sure it is getting a full 12 volts and check the ground wiring. Was this motor running before the MSD coil and dizzy were swapped on?
