xc dizzy/msd 6al

Can an xc electronic dizzy without the control module be hooked to an msd 6al?

Yep. Hook it to the magnetic pickup connector. (green and purple wires)

There will be 2 black wires coming out of the dizzy that connect to your old module. One will have a small plug terminal and the other slightly larger.

The small black goes to the purple and the large black goes to the green.

If you fit them backwards it will sound like a top fueller idling and will run like crap

I must of got lucky with everyone I have ever done then, as I just hook them up to whatever one I pick up first. Seeing as the pickup produces an AC voltage I don't see why it would matter. But, then again, like I said maybe I am lucky.

Re: xc dizzy/msd 6al

Got a new MSD 6al $227au and the dizz for $63 over the weekend! Got to be happy with that as 6al are about $470 here

Easier than setting up the xd dizz I got!

I can confirm this is the case as well. I recently installed a 6AL with an XC distributor. It was running like a sick diesel but the static timing was around 10 degrees a idle. Scrathed my head then swapped the wires and it was running correctly.

If you look in a XD manual in relation to the module circuit wiring it clearly states there is an 'A' and 'B' on the reluctor/stator wires and these go to specific terminals on the 4 pin module; the terminals are actually different sizes to ensure correct installation of a new module.

Re: xc dizzy/msd 6al

Well, there's today's lesson then...... I would have done probably 15 or so dizzy conversions using XC dizzys and whatever module I could get my hands on (Bosch, MSD, etc). I even put the top of an XC dizzy into a Rover V8 which was fitted to a BMW. Every one has started up and ran sweet. That would be a good probability exercise for someone; 15 lots of 50-50.....

The only ONE that was ever a problem was one that was made up XC and XD parts and had a dual diaphragm vacuum unit. The rotor has 2 alignment slots, and the pin was in the wrong one. Remove the circlip, lift the rotor, spin it around to the other slot, reinstall the clip and away it went.
