I just found out my 6AL doesnt work, has anyone ever took one apart and fixed them?? I just want to know if there is an easy fix, or do i need to send it to MSD? Thanks for any help.

thanks, but i dont really "need" one, i just wanted the one i have to work..I called MSD and they said it will only cost about 40 bucks to get it fixed, so thats what i'll probably do.

If you haven't sent it off yet, and it isn't still under warrantee, I'd open the back up and take a look at the printed circuit board. If it is fried, then call MSD back and ask them if it is still $40.00.

I have one they have hemmed and hawwed about for over a month over, burned up printed circuit and five components, and they say no dice.

I have seen ones with a good board, and just a couple of resistors or other stuff burned, and the $40.00 repair was well worth it.

If the printed circuit is fried or cracked, MSD will just kick the unit back to you with a "sorry, Charlie" if it is still under warrantee, or it will end up costing you almost as much as a new unit.

I sent my non-functional MSD box back last week for repairs.I asked the tech guy how do I know that the repair won't outweight the cost of buying a new unit.I was TOLD that the maximum charge would be $60.I don't know how true this is because I have been TOLD many things over the phone that are pure B.S..Thats why I always get the name of the person on the other end,makes it easier to get a refund when I complain.

yeah, thats what i was told 55 dollars max, but probably around 40. I'll open it up and see if the board is fried. I really hope its not. I already have an MSD 8360 billet distributor, i just wanted this mainly for the rev limiter
