81 CJ 304 ignition coil connector

I'm finishing my rebuild, and it's almost time to fire up th engine. My problem is that my Centech wiring harness instructions show a coil connector, but I'm curious if this is necessary for an 81. First of all, I don't know much about ignition systems. I can't find the coil connector on rockauto.com, or any of the local parts houses for my year model. The coil that I bought (for an 81) has two unthreaded posts like the connector would fit on, but I'm wondering if I got the right one. I found the connector for earlier year models and its only $4. Should I buy a different coil (with threaded posts), or order the coil connector? Is there any difference?

I've had both, as long as your connections are tight I doubt it matters. Besides if you plan on doing an HEI or going to the Motorcraft coil that mounts on the fender you won't need it anyways.

I was leaning more towards the threaded coil. Thanks for the reply.
