Default Stealth Ram/ Accel distributor swap connection trouble

I did not take this apart, and I do not have any instructions.

I know the pics are not great, it's hard to hold the flashlight and the camera and hold the plugs steady.

I don't know where any of these plugs go and that last one is really big and seems important.

The last big plug is part of the coil.
But I don't know what it connects to.

I will post better pics of any that I have not figured out by tomorrow, going to push the car out into the sunlight so I can get a decent pic without the flash and being 5 inches away.

I can't find anything online regarding that big plug coming out of the loom with the coil.

I am ready to fire up after almost 2 years. And am pretty anxious.

A much better picture of the the conector I assume is why I don't have spark. But I still can't find a plug for it.

Hmm. Maybe hat's not one conector, it's two? I one that may not be there yet and I need to get a pigtail, and one for the tachometer?

hopefully I can follow those wires and find the conector or where the conector is supposed to be. It could be that whoever wired the ignition box in did not make provisions for the remote coil.
Very happy to have a lead to go on... Don't like messing with wires though.

i found some instructions. Top Right plug is the one in question.
Since mine is a conversion I don't have that conector. I found a pig tail, but what do I have to wire it in to?

Thanks guys, I got it wired and fired!

Well sorta, it ran for about 30 seconds but real slow, like in slow motion, then it backfired and died...
fuel pressure was only reading 10 psi, so I've some different Gremlins to chase now.
