No start after petronix

I got rid of the points in my 72 250.I installed petronix electronic substitute. But now all i get is cranking, no start. The installation instructions are very easy to follow. It only has the two wires,neg and pos. What do I look for now?

Where did you connect wires?

On my '72 SL, I connected black to same connector that green used to connect to and red to 12v side of first resistor.

Also ran a ground from distributor body to battery negative. (Not really needed)
