You need to hook only the black and orange on the coil
The msd will take care of the coil power itself ;)

When you said no power to the coil do you mean no 12V ??

Did you crank the engine to check for spark usually those msd don't burn so easy ?

Can you post the installation picture the way you wired ??

Heavy red = Plus +
Heavy black = ground
Red = 12v ignition switched
Orange = plus + coil positive
Back = negative coil

The tach wire goes to the input of the msd

Check it the msd is set for 4 cylinder

The green and purple is for the magnetic pickup distributer !

Or The with wire to the negative of the distributer magnetic pickup
