The red wire ties in to the small red on the MSD box, and the black wire goes to the white wire on the MSD box instead of the coil.

Nice!



I made a quick decision about that MSD box because I don't want to have to worry to baby the current ignition system because it is very picky and kick-backs can eventually mess my junk up.

My butt is telling me that the Merc likes 32* of timing better than 30* so I don't want to retard my timing.  Take that for what it's worth.  LOL!

Ever since I've been spinning the engine for a few seconds and then turning on the plugs it hasn't kicked back not one time.

I haven't installed the MSD unit because I am working ten hour days and weekends, too.

I paid $310 for the MSD unit.  If anyone wants it I will pay shipping if you Paypal me $300.  It is totally brand new and has not been touched at all.

I guess that the difference in starting the Merc is that when I start it normally the plugs are already creating too much "compression" so the starter isn't able to spin the engine quite fast enough even though it's one of those good high torque reduction-geared starters.

So when I crank the engine over for a few seconds without the plugs getting any spark and THEN I turn them on the starter is able to spin the engine quick enough so that it doesn't get any starter kick-back.

I am going to get a refund from SummitOnline because the Pertronix is working fine and I don't want to have to add any more to my ignition system further complicating things if I don't need to.


The answer is to spin the engine with no spark which allows the engine to spin rather quickly and then after a few seconds to then turn on the plugs.
