recently bought a older msd distributor and it has a orange and purple lead wire as to the newer distributors that have a green and purple wire I see it can only go in one way but was wondering if that was correct????

Doesn't that depend on whether it's a digital or analog ignition box?

There's probably something on the MSD site in the troubleshooting documents.
