boyer ignition problems

Hi everyone i just bought my first triumph. A 71 650 Bonneville.Over the winter I stored it in my Heated garage. I tried to start it There Was no spark. After investigation I found out it Has Boyer brasden Ignition. I contacted a dealer in Canada I sent complete ignition for testing . I bought 2 new 6 volt coils and new black box. i cant figure wiring out . My bike Has 2 white wires 1 from key, other is the Kill switch . i hope black box is not blown already. Thanks i love this site

These ignitions need a good healthy spin to spark, and some say a good battery. Does it spark with the plugs out and grounded ?
