Fun fun fun..... I think I am having fun
I am wiring up my 71 Camaro with the new motor and am confused with the wiring for the MSD Ignition system 6AL. I thought I had the wires all marked but I guess not as I can't figure it out. This was all hooked up before I pulled the motor so it is not new. Was running great, except the tach didn't work properly.
I have a Large Cap HEI distributor with a 5 pin module.
the MSD site says;
Red wire - to switched 12 volt source. got that one figured out, I think.
Orange - to positive terminal on coil. I assume that is the labelled BAT on the top of the cap next to the one labelled TACH
Black - negative terminal on coil - NO IDEA where this one goes.
White - connects to the points, electronic ignition applifier output or yellow wire of MSD timing accessory. AGAIN NO IDEA. Is this one of the three terminals next to the BAT/TACH terminals.
I tried calling MSD but they are closed til Monday.
I have looked at page 17 of the MSD site but it only confuses me more.
anyone have any ideas or clearer drawings of the wiring?
I am trying to convince myself I am still having fun....... might have to drink beer until MSD open on Monday
