Hi everyone. So I installed an MSD distributor in my vehicle and unless I run a jumper from the battery directly to the (+) side of the coil, the motor will not run even remotely close to normal. If it would start at all, it would sound like a motor that has 2 wires crossed or running on only 5 or 6 cylinders. Attach the jumper, problem solved (temporarily). Remove the jumper while the engine is running, and it would more than likely immediately stall. When I measured the voltage at the battery, coil and coil while cranking the starter motor, I obtained the following reading: 12.82v/12.20v/10.88 respectively. So, I assume I need to bypass the resistor wire. I removed some of the factory tape covering the wiring harness coming from the bulkhead connector off the firewall. I can see the resistor wire about 5" from the connector. I can't get closer or remove the connector itself because the brake booster is in the way. I suppose I could remove the booster, but that's a pain in the butt. Can I just splice there leaving the 5" of resistor wire? If the resistance is made up from the entire length of the wire, will leaving that 5" be inconsequential or do I need to come up with a different plan? Thanks!
