the way to hook up a 240 system when there is only 2 lugs is to attach
the red to one lug and the black to the other lug. be sure to attache
the green ( not white) to the case ground screw. the white ( neutral)
will be left unattached.
if you put both black and red together you will see lots of sparks (
not from your coil ) and you will burn down the whole block and a few
trees .... cats and dogs will go running down the street as flaming puff
balls of fire and someone will be unhappy......
