Re: MSD kit

I am a big advocate of vacuum advance. All but the most radical motors will benefit from it. Vacuum advance helps raise idle vacuum, improve idle quality and improves off-idle response.

Re: MSD kit

its sounds like you bought one with a mechanical advance, block off your carb port and set your distributor to correct timing
