Well it's in there and workin We'll see how it goes!
Wish me luck!:)

So if anyone is interested I have run the magfire all summer it hasn't missed a beat Great alternitive to points an condenser!They brag it up by saing it will add more power but thats a false hood in my estimaion Or some ones dream!Any way worth having just for the no points thing!

are you running a new coil with it? points can only handle 9 volts so the stock coil is designed to limit the current going to the points (it has a resistor in it) you can now run a coil with no resistor in it and run a full 12 volts to the coil to produce more voltage to the spark plugs. i doubt that you would be able to feel much of a power increase even with a new coil, but i thought i'd throw that fact out there for ya.
