factory dist. hookup to MSD

I have a rebuilt factory electronic distributor...I want to hook up to a MSD-6T box..Problem is we dont know what the colore codes on the dist. wires are to hook to the msd...we are assuming that red is hot white is ground and brown would be the trigger....Anyone know??/would hate to guess and blow the box....I have a 78 scout with the 345 engine if that helps...the dist. is the prestolite electronic.

Re: factory dist. hookup to MSD

I have the prestolite dist. on my Traveler. This is how mine is wired: Red to + coil, brown to - coil, white grounded out. Hope that helps.
