BACK IN ANCIENT TIMES PURCHASED MSD6A W/KIT FOR HEI & BLASTER COIL. BUILT COMPLETE CUSTOM HARNESS FOR.

USED APPROX 3 MO. CAR REARENDED AND TOTALLED. INSURANCE CO WOULD NOT PAY FOR "EXTRAS" ON CAR SO REMOVED. TO BOX ON SHELF IN BASEMENT.

FAST FORWARD 20+ YEARS. HAVE ANOTHER HOTROD WITH HEI. GET OUT OF BOX. INSTALL ON NEW VEHICLE (FIND A MOUNTING POSITION AWAY FROM ENGINE HEAT) MAKE A NEW CUSTOM HARNESS.

ALL SEEMS FINE. 2 WEEKS / APPROX 200 MI. ON SUNDAY 8/23/15, AM APPROX 75 MILES FROM HOME. STOP FOR GAS.

WILL NOT RESTART. HAS FUEL, NEW BATTERY, JUST CRANKS - NOTHING. CALL SON WHO BRINGS TRAILER, WINCH ON TAKE HOME. MONDAY 8/24/15.

NO SPARK. CHECK BY SHORTING MAG PICKUP WIRES - NOTHING. CHECK MAG PICKUP - HAS INDUCED SIGNAL. CHECK COIL PRIMARY - HAS CIRCUIT.

RIG HARNESS TO USE OLD HEI MODULE. STARTS RIGHT UP. DIAGNOSIS: FAULTY MSD BOX. AFTER THIS LONG DONT DARE TO CALL RE "WARRANTY".

JUST A COMMENT ON THE QUALITY OF MSD EQUIPMENT. SO EVEN THOUGH IS ANCIENT, HAS ONLY BEEN USED FOR SLIGHTLY OVER THREE MONTHS BEFORE LEAVING ME STRANDED. REAL GOOD JOB GUYS !

PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO QUALITY CONTROL DEPARTMENT OR WHOEVER. TO SAY AM DISPLEASED IS VAST UNDERSTATEMENT.

Reason of review: Bad quality.

Monetary Loss: $250.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
