UT Identifying ignition wires

Hey guys I just got myself a 87 turbo II project. I'm completely new to rotaries and need some help identifying these ignition wires and where they go, I can tell where the brown wire goes but what about the black one? What are they?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I think that the black would be a single wire with a bullet connector (used for Tach,but usually not hooked up as the Tach signal comes off the Trailing coil,not the Leading coil you have posted a pic of).

Alright, I'll cap the black, reconnect the brown and see what happens, thank you!
