Anybody have a MSD Distributor P/N 8755???

Post  Moodyblues on August 28th 2013, 5:43 pm

Long story..........but make it short


Car was running great..................I sent the distributor to MSD to have a new pin and gear installed.

I brought the timing to TDC. Removed the distributor and sent to MSD. They rebuilt the whole thing and sent back to me.

I put the new distributor back in and it misses. It has a dead miss now and Ive done everything from timing, checking compression, everything. The car has a dead miss. The front two cylinders (1 and 5) are not not as hot as the the others and on alky may be getting too much fuel.

Bottom Line: I put the distributor back in the way it came out when the car was running great and nothing should have changed!

If you are interested,I have a complete crank trigger deal. Dizzy and all the acc.

On another note,Harold sent one back to MSD for rebuild,when he got it back,I put it in my engine and it ran for about 3 min. and the shaft frozeup n the housing and sheared the gear pin. They must have a bunch of apprentice's doing rebuilds.

you just changed the car over to alky a short time ago right?
Is it Injected (direct port) or carb?
If its like mine (Rons Toilet) with line to each runner you might check & make sure EVERYTHING is clean /no trash stuck in the nozzles, jets, etc...
I know it sounds dumb but a clogged nozzle, line , jet will do exactly what you are describing... just sayin.

I know this seems obvious and stupid, but have you triple-checked the firing order from the cap to the plugs? That's one of my favorite things to take for granted.Rolling Eyes
