A Discovery? Green Wire is just an earth? MSD involved

The Shield wire from the Dizzy,

i cut out the plug as im hardwiring (trying to) my ignition in,

Ive noticed the Shield wire diverts to the Earth lead,well it does on a 77 Euro with an 8 pin CDI

see photo,

Possibly this is why im having trouble getting Tach working after putting in MSD, ?

It says to put violet wire to the shield,

but configurations are different
in my case where ive cut the plug out if i run the violet as notes then the coaxial of the green will no longer be going to an earth, or is the MSD violet an earth as well i wonder?

I havent heard or seen this mentioned previously in posts,
You can see in the photo where the coaxial veers off to an EARTH fronm the CDI PLUG
Anyone seen this before?
