I might extend the wires into the cab and put them on a switch.
The red wire that switches the box on?
It should have power at crank and run

Mines up and running.
I noticed the msd changed my timing some so had to reset that.
Have vacuum gauge hooked to manifold vacuum now to run engine diagnostics

I still need to get one of those. From what I read they're an invaluable tool.

Does your jeep sound different after the msd? I swear mine sounds louder.

Lol, it might sound a little throatier or stronger.
I just posted in the CJ forum a question about my vacumm readings. All seemed good but one reading seems off a bit.
Its taken me 35 years to finally use a vacuum gauge and I am amazed at what it can tell you.

I won't be able to pick one up until next week, but I'm going to start reading up on how to use a vacuum gauge. Seems like the simplest tool that provides the most benefit.

I finally got the bigger diode soldered in. Turning off and on like a champion. Now to just wait for the new carb.

Do you think it would be hard to wire the red power for the MSD into the cab and put a switch on it? What would be needed and would it be an effective kill switch?

If it runs/turns off now, why?
You can put a switch on the white wire to ground as a kill switch. Msd tells how. Just put the switch under the dash.

I didn't know you could use the white wire as a kill switch, sounds a lot easier.

What did you end up gaping your plugs too?
