Hello guru's of the AMC,

73 Javelin 304. I am in the putting back together mode and have encountered a problem. I think I have something wrong. Fried a set of points, I mean melted the plastic and smoke came from under the distributor cap! I also have no spark coming from distributor. I THINK I put the wires back the way they were, but not +. So, I have 2 wires on + side of the coil with one of them being the yellow going to the regulator and the other going to the distributor. There is one wire to the - side of the coil and it goes into the wiring harness and goes back to the firewall, it appears to be black or dark brown. Also, there seems to be a high drain on the battery. Any help???
