if your down in the furnace the RED goes to the R 24v HOT connection within the furnace and the GREEN goes to the C terminal COMMON again if you have a terminal strip...if it is connecting to a solid state board check the schematic and trace the 2 low voltage wires into the board might even see a R screw teminal and C screw terminal on that board...always do this with the furnace toggle power switch off for shock reasons but if your new transformer isnt fused one sparked wire will burn it out.getting a 24V or 115V shock is like sticking your finger with a sewing needle carefull with power off you good to go
