I have a 1971 Torino 500 and just completed a motor swap.  Now I can't get any spark.  I am pretty sure that the problem is with my wiring to the ignition coil.  It looks like the previous ower tried rewiring it but I think he messed it  up.  Could some please tell me what wires need to go to the coil?

One wire goes to the switched power (12 Volts when power is on) - that is the "hot side" of the coil (+). The other side goes to the distributor.
