Couldn't figure out what was going on but we discovered that the coil has a positive charge on both terminals -...

    Earlier today I finally fitted my new weber 32/36 carb to my 1303 s beetle. I turned the ignition on and tried to start it up and nothing happened, then the condensor wires and points wires were smoking and all stripped. Any solutions? I think i may have wired everything back up incorrectly but...
