    MSD Ignition

    HI ya all

    Is there anybody out there with a MSD 6AL using ETB instruments who can give me a pointer, will the taco work direct from the MSD Tach output or do you need one of their adaptors?

    Cant run the engine to test at the moment as the dash and exhaust have been removed, even worse ETB are on holiday until the end of the month, so no info there.

    Hi Gary, yes I have an MSD 6AL and ETB instruments and the tacho runs straight off the out put on the MSD unit. :thumb: :thumb: so no need for any adaptor

    I've often been asked, "What do you old folks do now that you're retired?
    Well, I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background, one of the things I enjoy most is turning beer, wine, Scotch and margaritas into urine.

    Life's good, live it.
