Is there a way to check out a MSD6AL box? My car shut off and wouldn't start until I changed the distributor,"Because you have to take out the innerds," It was easier than trying to replace that stuff while the distributor was in the car. With the box unhooked it started. Can they be sent back for a factory overhaul? Thanks, Rick.

If you have your instructions for the MSD, it has a troubleshooting section in it. After verifying the power wires are getting power and the ground is good, disconnect the 2 wire harness that goes the the distributor's magnetic pick-up. Take a jumper wire and momentarily connect the 2 wires together. There should be a spark at the coil wire everytime you do this. If not, send it to MSD for repair. I just had mine repaired and it costed $27 plus shipping. works good now.

check to see if you fried your rpm chip on the bottum.You should be able to check it with an ohm meter like you would check a fuse.
