Thank you 40 Deluxe

Very astute answer.

You beat me to it about MSD.

More forum members would be a little more comfortable getting a brand new MSD box than buying a used 70's CDI off Ebay.

I never bought one in the 80's.Just used better chrome plated ECU box and better chrome coil from Direct Connection.Might have been MSD stuff.Who knows?

I talked to an electronics expert yesterday and he knew the box we have.

He had one or more CDI's himself.

Made the comment he remembers having to change the plugs about once a year.

Said I had him remembering stuff he has not thought about in 60 years!
