Default Wiring questions

Sorry guys, I'm a shit head, I'm back to not selling the truck, I have the engine mounted up and it seems to be coming together. I am currently trying to wire the 22R and will probably have several questions in this thread since I am not to bright (at all) when it comes to reading wiring diagrams. This is a 1980 truck and a 1983 engine (20R and 22R respectively) Onto my first question...

For the coil wiring, I have coming from the wiring harness Red, Black and yellow; on the coil I have black, yellow, and a muttled white that 24yrs ago may have been red. Anyway, as I understand it the black wire from the coil is not used, does the yellow wire hook to both the black and yellow in the harness and the muttled white to the red? That appears to be how it was wired on the '83 but I didn't mark the wires when I pulled out the old coil

Next is the alternator, The harness wires are black, black and black and the pigtail wires from the '83 are green, yellow, and white w/ black stripe. On the '80 there is also a small (2") pigtail that connects from the alternator to the longer pigtail that connects to the harness. The colors on this are black, yellow, and white w/black stripe. So should I assume that the black wire on the 80 side would connect to the green wire on the 83 side?

Thank you guys and sorry to anyone interested in the truck, I promise I will never be this wishy washy on the trail (if I ever make it there). As always any help would be great.

I think for now I'm just going to wing it and hope for the best, I am also going to go pick up a haynes manual today to see if the wiring diagrams are any more helpful than those in my chiltons. I'm pretty sure I have it right as far as the wiring is concerned so I am going to turn the truck over and see if I get any spark. I'd still appreciate some clarification though.

Thanks

To be honest I hadn't even considered that until now. That solves my alternator problems. Unfortunately the coil wires were cut and twisted together, i.e. no original connectors to work with, and I already pulled the old coil so now I'm dinking around trying to get this one hooked up, I may try to salvage the old one as a spare but the wireing on that one is pretty crazy.

True dat, I am going to bid on a factory manual for the 1980 unfortunately it will be at least a week before I have that in hand so for now I will go get the haynes manual to compliment my chiltons. Thanks for the help man, I really want to get the truck out of my garage and onto a trail.

You might PM Brimy311 if you can find him around. He runs that style coil on his 22R.

Thank you Jesus , I think both of those will help, I didn't bother too much with pirate since you have to pay to use their search.

I just got a haynes manual covering just 1979-1983 pickups (printed in 1983 no less) and this book has 39 pages of just wiring!!! I think I should be able to figure this out now that I've killed a half hour remembering that L = Blue My 1980 FSM should be here around wednesday but I almost think I won't be needing it now.

Edit: I got the coil wired last week and have yet to check for spark. I will probably get my batt. on the charger today so I can crank her over and see if it's got spark.
