Msd Ignition

Got my Ignition sytem today. Msd 6al box, blaster 2 coil, eagle leads and a msd dizzy $1000.

The bloke at the performance shop showed me a sample system and the differences between the points spark and the msd spark. I was impressed.... another member once said its like a welder to each piston i can understand that now.

I cant wait to fit it on the weekend. Now i need a 4.11 diff and im all set till i can afford to buy the convo pros and some other little bits and pieces.

Re: Msd Ignition

Just be careful and don't let it zap you I've had a few zaps from an MSD using a standard barrel type coil. It's no fun and a little painful.

That's called Darwin's theory of natural selection.

I like the arc welder chirp sound they make when you test the leads on the block. There's no freakin' way I'll touch one!!

Re: Msd Ignition

I've onyl ever been bitten by MSD once as well...... it felt like every joint in my hand and fingers exploded, and it took about half an hour before the feeling came back. Not nice.

Re: Msd Ignition

I don't plan on getting bitten by my MSD.

I learnt real fast when my Dad got me to hold the mower plug lead as he turned the motor over when I was a little fella (they didn't have rubber boots on the lead in those days)

After that, Dad figured it was a fuel problem (why it wouldn't start)

The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"

Re: Msd Ignition

Well i got it all in tonight what a mission. Im no mechanic or electrician but how easy is it with clear instructions.
Now i have to adjust the timing, also need to change the advance settings springs and the little bush needs changing but im going to get a mechanic to do it. It took me 4 hours to do it all and get the car running first go. I also need to change the spark gap to about 50 thou ill do that tommorow morning.

Re: Msd Ignition

Good stuff! 4hrs is no time at all for the advantages it gives!

Just a couple weeks ago while putting my motor back together etc... I was holding the coil lead and getting my brother to turn the key over to fill the fuel bowls. Either i moved my hand past it, or the rubber isn't good enough cause I copped one big ass shock! my shoulder blades near touched from force :p blaster 2 coiler with 6al!
