coil test

When I had coil touble at dave the wave's a couple years ago,
one of the old timers at the parts store told me how to test the polarity.
Take off one of the plug wires & hold it close enough to the plug for the
spark to jump.
Then hold a lead pencil between the plug & wire.
Now crank it over & watch if the spark jumps from the pencil to the plug or
the wire to the pencil.
At this point I can't remember which one is correct, so test this on a car
you know is correct & you'll have the answer.

Till later.....
