Did you order Lucas DBL105 or DBL110? I'm not sure, but I think 105 is for the non-ballasted system of the S1 and 110 for the S2. If there are two wires on the positive side of your coil you have a ballasted system. 1 wire, as Chris York said, from the starter solenoid with no resistance so allowing the ignition system to have only 1.5 ohms resistance thus giving a stronger spark and when the solenoid is switched off the feed comes through the ballasted wire. Making up for 3 ohms total and having a lower input.
