[DML] Re: Dwell meter setting?? More than you might want to know... ? too LONG?

Now, I am getting confused...
To quote page 122 of the DMC Technical Information Manual, ...
Connect the dwell meter leads to the diagnostic plug.  The positive  dwell 
lead is connected to the lower right corner terminal of the plug as viewed  with 
the plug cover hinge on the right side.  The negative dwell lead is  
connected to the terminal directly above the positive as viewed with the plug  cover 
hinge on the right.  Set the dwell meter to four (4) cylinder  scale.
This seems to be correct in terms of what the picture and description is in  
the DeLorean Workshop Manual on page M:03:01 but I seem to remember this did 
not  work for me
I haven't  done it for a while so I can't confirm it.
Can anyone check  this out for us?

Would you be able to tell us which terminal this wire should  connect
to by chance?  I have been connecting the black ground wire to  ground
when trying to check my dwell, maybe that's why my needle isn't  moving
but is rather still.
