I want to start my engine on a stand. I have an MSD6AL ignition box, MSD distributor, tachometer, MSD blaster coil, battery, no alternator, and a generic starter. How do I bypass the ignition? I would like to be able to jump across the starter motor to start. How would I kill it hooked up this way? TIA Kevin

You can wire a momentary switch directly to the starter relay and the battery. Put a big wire from the battery to the starter. 12 ga wire from the battery to a SPST toggle switch and from the switch to the HEI. This will also turn the engine off. This setup will let you turn the engine over to get oil pressure before you put 12v on the HEI to start it. I did this to mine. It was great with open headers in the back yard. www.dennymac.com Look at the link for the Engine test stand. Best of luck to you.
