(Some claim you should reverse the ignition coil wires, but I believe
that's an old wives' tale.)

Then why do the coil manufacturers mark the leads for + and - if it
makes no difference?  Just to make sure that the + and - weren't
confused early Lucas coils were marked sw (switch) and cb (contact

It's not an old wives tale.  Reversing the coil leads maintains the
correct direction of the spark jump for the plugs and distributer
points.  Not reversing the coil wires has been know to cause early
failure of the distributer's points and or condensor.
