Here's what my replacement coil looks like attached:
Spark plug wire is attached by stripping the covering and wrapping the wire around the loop sticking out of the coil, although I do not see that on yours?
I carry bulk plug wire and ends and I'm sure all the other site sponsors do as well if you need it.

The wire setup is an issue that always seems to come up using the Scintilla coils for outboards for small engines. It seems that the coil properties are the same, but the wiring is the main different.
I've been known to heat shrink some butt connectors in place to make the wires longer. Just make sure you heat shrink it so moisture can't get in to the wire and cause the resistance levels to go up.
You can also solder the end of the spark plug wire to the coil if yours comes with just the bump contact on it. Just don't get the coil too hot. If you're good with a soldering iron you'll be a-ok.

Thanks ben, I have a small pencil type soldering iron that I think would work well for this, I think ill use some butt connectors and heat shrink them like you said.
