The top pic is of your coil, and the bottom is of your solenoid. The best, easiest, safest way for you to go about wiring a used ignition amplifier from MSD is to probably do one of the following (in order of life safety)
1. Since you are new to this, and you do not know the difference between a ignition coil, and a starter solenoid,...it would be prudent to enlist the help/services of someone that does.
2. The coil, and the ignition box are capable of voltages in excess of 50,000 volts. You need to be real sure about what you are doing. There have been waay more than a few here that could probably tell you what it feels like to get hit w/ that voltage.
3. MSD has an entire web page w/ downloadable instruction manuals for all of their products that are very well defined, that will help you, or your friend through the hook up. THAT should be the very next thing you do.
