MSD again!!??

OK this is my second MSD dist in 400 miles? First 1 was out of phase now car was parked for 1 week waiting for IDIDIT tilt column install etc.went to fire up when finished and no spark? What gives? Is there any way I can be hurt'n them ? You would think the box would pile up before dist.! Put in old HEI and fired right up after checking box to ensure it was OK!

Re: MSD again!!??

FWIW, I had major issues w/ my 6AL box last year. I went w/ a Digital 6 Plus and there were no issues. A Digital 6 Plus doesn't run much more than a 6AL. The 6-AL at times can be very frustrating.
