Don"t feel bad, brokengun. I had to ask the same question a couple of weeks ago, regarding my 830. I yanked all the old wires off and threw them away then a week or so later I"m trying to figger out what goes where. The old noggon don"t work as good as it use to and those wiring diagrams in the books are just a little bit better than nothing.
If you need more help here, reply back. I finally got mine running and have all the info at work. Case nutty saved me too. The white wire goes from the resistor then up to the + side of the coil...slim
