MSD diode placement?
Just wondering where you good people put your diode for those running an MSD ignition?
Iíve got mine triggering through a points distributor and of course I get run-on due to the feedback through ALT light. At the moment, Iíve unhooked the 6A box (shutting the car off by pulling the coil lead off is kind of inconvenient, not to mention a tad jarring at times!) and I am consequently running on points for the time being.
MSD says the diode needs to run inline to connection 1 on the voltage regulator, but of course thereís a 4-pin plug in there so Iíll have to tap the wire somewhere aft of the voltage reg to install the diode. Logic tells me I want to splice the diode into the Green/Red wire, before the wire runs into the 4-pin plug.
Sound right to you guys? Carís a 65 hardtop, stock wiring.
