Re: Msd Box

If you look at the instruction manual I believe it shows how to bypass the box. It has been a while but I have done it. Basically remove it from the circuit. But then I see you have a 79, HEI? Don't know.

Re: Msd Box

As suggested, the instructions should give you bypass hook-up.
MSD gives it as a troubleshooting tool to determine if dist is bad or box is bad.
