Hi Lance...

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......
