You have to slide the wire inside of it some more.

That connector may be bent in the wrong position. Slide the boot down the wire to get a better look at it.

It's on right, just gotta break the boot loose from the wire.

That end looks like it is made for the old style coils?
Did they send any other coil wires?
Sometimes they include both types.
A bit of silicone spray lube will make the boots slide easy on the wires.

With that type of distributor cap, the coil wire on the distributor end should look just like the plug wires. You may have gotten a set for an older model or something? You can usually get the correct connector and boot at an auto parts store and just cut that off and replace it. Just be sure to follow the directions in prepping and crimping the connector in place.

Is that wire going to a coil?

Or is it going to a sparkplug
