wiring new coil help?

need help wiring the ignition coil-i have four small wires.first wire is in an oversized black sleeve-i think it goes to the ballast resistor? can some one let me know if im right or not? also if i goes to the ballast and my new coil has the ballast built into it where do i wire this? the other three wires are white,one is a small white wire, one is a large white wire and one is a small white wire with a black stripe-i am guessing these go to the positve and negitve post come off the coil?can some one tell me which go to where? that all for the coil wires i have another small white wire by the air flow senesor plug that i need help with also-the air flow sensor plug and this small white wire with black rings around it, in an oversized black sleeve, come off the same wire loom-i have no idea where this wire goes to?anybody have any idea of what im talking about

The wire with the sleeve goes to the tach, I believe. The white and white with black stripe go to the ignition coil and the other white is the switched ignition 12v. I do not think there are any ballast resistors in line in these trucks.
