Must be the wrong schematic.  All TR6 were originally negative ground, meaning the hot (white) wire would be positive.  It should only go to the negative terminal on a positive ground car (like TR2-4).

In this case, you want the side of the coil that is actually negative, regardless of what the markings are.  In other words, even if the coil were wired backwards (as your schematic seems to show), you would still want to connect the trigger wire to the side of the coil that gets grounded (since your car is negative ground).  Since you have a Pertronix installed, that would be the terminal with the black wire from the Pertronix module.  With points, it would be the terminal that is connected to the points.
