1986 TC Project

I got in touch with MSD on Friday and was advised that both of the MSD 6Al-2 boxes failed due to a voltage spike. They are recommending that I removed the MSD constant power wire from the my power terminal block on the fender and re-connect it directly to the + battery post.

Based on the Tech at MSD recommendation, I ran a 10 ga wire directly from the positive battery terminal to the constant 12v power wire of the MSD 6al-2 ignition box.  I added a 20 amp circuit breaker right outside the battery box to protect the wire and a MSD “Noise Filter” capacitor, part #8830.  Based on what I have read, this should smooth out voltage to the MSD ignition box and protect against voltage spikes.  The capacitor was installed per MSD’s instructions, the ground wire from the ignition box goes to the capacitor then to the ground wire on the engine block.

   


   

Now for the bad news. The repairs to my primary and back-up MSD 6al-2 ignition boxes won’t be completed in time for the season ending tract day at Limerock Park. I don’t feel comfortable temporarily mounting the back-up’s back-up, the digital 6al and running the car untested and not having a 2nd box with me should something go wrong. I don’t want to be stranded 2 1/2 hours from home. I definitely could use some seat time.  Thinking about a plan B.
