    MSD ignition timing set up


    I have MSD 6AL - was perfectly set up and running, but having removed and refitted the distributor isn't anymore.

    So normal timing strobes don't seem to work well - is the only answer an MSD timing strobe (which are pretty expensive !)

    Or is there another way to set up the ignition timing - other than 'sounds about right there' which is what it is at the moment.

    The MSD stops multiple discharge at 3000 rpm so if you have a dial back timing light you can set the timing at about 34 degrees at 3000 rpm.
    Cheap timing lights with no dial back allegedly work ok with MSD units.
    The Flaming river FR1001 timing light works good with the MSD
