Default help wiring points

I have an electronic ignition on my 82 ironhead 1000cc and am going to swap to points.I have the points and coil but no idea how to wire this up. I have a wiring diagrm but it about as useless as **** on a nun, and Im a little slow due to all the hits in the mellon.Can anybody give me a step by step detailed instruction on how to wire this up? Points came unassembled and wire is not hooked to anything. pics would be great. Anybody got some crayons and willing to help an old idiot?

Points uses a 5 ohm coil, electronic ignition would have been 3 ohms.

The long wire from the points runs to either end of the coil. The white wire from the Run/Stop switch goes to the other end.

Mick, is there anything you dont know? How do the wires hook to the points? Thats all unassembled with connectors and all that stuff. Got a correct coil for the points. Wouldnt have thought to replace that had I not gone through some of your old discussions in the forums. Once again,thanks.

Maybe you have it done already, but here is a pic of the wiring hook up at the ignition points.
There are going to be two wires needed. The blue wire is from the condenser which sits next to the points.
The black wire is going to the coil. It goes into a hole at the bottom of the timing cover cavity where the points and condenser sit. Beyond the hole opening is a channel where the wire runs, coming out of the cover at the bottom.
The pic does not show the hole clearly, but that is all there is to the hook up.
