So I've got this 64 Spit (MKI) which I traded a bicycle for, yes the bike was 
in working order, but I wan't going to need it.  Anyway...the car has sat in a 
dry garage for about 25 years or so.  No fluid in the radiator, fresh oil when has done duty as a shelf for many years.  I get this thing home 
and start going over it...I replaced the hoses and belt, ignition key cylinder 
and coil.  Bought a battery today and installed it, car cranked, lights came 
on. wipers worked...even the horn works!  Amazing!  Engine pulls fuel from the 
gas can, but I'm getting no spark from the coil.  Logically I've got it hooked 
up wrong.  The car is still running positive ground and I do have a wiring 
diagram, but no photos of the wiring near the starter relay/coil.  Could anyone 
out there pop their hood and describe to me in 100 words or less where all 
those wires need to go (polarity would be helpful too)?

Thanks much.
