Is ballast not normally for use with coil? I don't think I've seen one on a dizzy. Can you not look at fitting instructions on the dizzy vendors web site?

If the distributor is a HEI type, the 12V (no ballast resistor needed) ignition connection goes to the + terminal. The other terminal is for an electronic tacho. The distributor doesn't need a separate earth connection.
