So, pulling the cap off where I thought the breaker points would be, low and behold there's a dyna ignition system in there. However there are 3 wires(red, white & black) while the wiring diagram says there's only supposed to be 2 wires coming from the breaker system. Am I to presume the white and red are the hot wires and the black is a ground to somewhere?

There should be a red, yellow and blue. The red a switched 12v source, yellow to right coil, blue to left.

But where in the wiring diagram do I hook the red to? then the black and white would be the other two coils respectively?

Any switched positive, on the inline fours usualy the power wire at the rear brake light swich but basivally any black coloured wire ought to be switched power

To the black/white wire to the coils. If you have black and white rather than yellow and blue it's just a guess as to which coil to connect which to.

Seems an odd place to connect.

On the fours the pickups are on rh side of crank and brakelight switch wires are in a rubber boot with points wires so makes great sense for those

Your right hand must be on the opposite side from mine.

Dyna instructions recommend splicing the red wire into the white/green wire at the turn signal flasher. This is switched 12 volts.

If I hooked the power wire into the brake switch hot lead would that not be sufficient? I traced the diagram and the hot from the brake switch does loop into the turn signal flasher thingy.
