Default Coil polarity and check

I was wiring for COP's and may have messed it up. Long story short I need to wire for sequential for it to work with my Hydra. So I'm wiring the factory coil plugs to the weatherpacks so that I can go back to stock for a bit. Question is: What pin is what on the coil its self is what? When wiring for COPs I didn't keep the same order left to right, I know what color does what just not where each color goes to what. Here is a very badly drawn paint pic.

If someone could just give me what A B and C are that would be great. At least it would help me multimeter out the harness to match the plugs. Also, what happens if say hypothetically I tried starting the car with the + and - switched on the factory coil? Fry it? If the ignition wires are unplugged but the coils are plugged in and I try to turn the motor (w/ starter) would it fry the ignitors in the stock coils? Thanks for any help

Great Scott!



Wherein B/W (Black/White) is +12, B (Black) is GND, and BR (Brown) or BR/Y (Brown/Yellow) are the triggers.

Thanks, and just to verify ^ that is the plug on the coil, not the plug on the harness order. And that is the looking at the plug on the coil with the bulk of it's material on the bottom.

Also, that's funny as hell. I was "The Doc" for an 80's party last year and still use the lab coat to work on the car in.

So this is the looking into the plug from the side the wires enter the plug from the harness. Am I correct to believe this is a correct assumption of what the plug on the coil is? and from that I can figure the wires from there

IE:


Sorry if I'm confused and annoying. Just want to be sure before giving it the juice.
