Help w/ MSD Install

491 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  bluseman2a
I am going to install the MSD6 box in my jeep and I wonder about the magnetic sensor wires that go to the distributor v. the white wire. I have an 82 CJ with a 258. Since I don't have points I don't use the white wire, right? That leaves me with the magnetic sensor wires. Which wires do I connect them to? I assume I have to splice into the wires coming out of the Dist. But I am not sure which ones.

Also, where is a common/good place to mount the box. My air conditioning hoses block off most of the inner fender well. I could put it on top of the fender (still in the hood), or it will fit on the down side of the fender between the jack and the outer body part of the fender. Any other suggestions?

Any help would be appreciated.
