Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Mazda b2200 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 122000 miles

I have a 1989 Mazda B2200 I just recently bought. When I bought it iw was missing the coil and the cooling fan. My question is after I went and bought a coil. How do I wire it. The hot wire from the positive of the battery, does it go on the positive or negative side of coil. Also on the distributor side, does it go to positive or negative. Last There is 2 wires coming off the distributor, one of them I know goes to the coil, the other is a plug in type that I cannot find anywhere it goes. Am I missing something else?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Ok, The 2 wires coming off the distributor both go to the Coil. There somewere is another wire that comes from the Ignition Switch the wire should only have power with the Key in the On Position.
