Look carefully for the ignition coil on this diagram:

This is the same as your setup.
Coil (-) has one wire. It goes to the distributor's points.
Coil (+) has two wires. One comes from the resistor. The other comes from the starter solenoid (push-on connector). You don't have overdrive so disregard the third wire.

That is your setup. Wire your car to match this diagram. Did you replace any of the burned wires? Did you order a Shop Manual? - Dave

Another question... I have two wire hooked to the negative side of the coil. 1) goes directly to the distributor, the other is in the same wire bundle as "source power" and goes back through the firewall... what is the other wire?

Also... for future... what should I have out of the - side of the coil? 12V or 9
The resistor getting hot to touch is normal.

Both power leads (as Dave mentioned) should go the the + side of the coil. Only one goes from the coil - terminal to the distributor.

The value of the resistor should be given in the Shop Manual.

Hmmm... wonder what happened to poor VinceBird. Hope he didn't get shocked.
