Thread: MSD Blaster SS Coil

  1. #1

    Default MSD Blaster SS Coil

    I burnt out my MSD Blaster SS coil with a brand new 6AL. I just forgot turn switch off after five minutes, just burns out. What I wrong did?

    How do you have the coil mounted? And how many wires are connected to the coil? Which distributor are you running with this setup?

    I've also burned up a couple coils. Turning the power on, but not starting the engine will energize the coil and put too much heat into it.

    What system is that? A 6AL certainly won't do that. Gary

    Back when I was using a 6AL-2 programmable. That is what I was told happened, could be wrong, I don't have it any more to test.

    Well there are a few factors that come into play when using this coil. That's why it has to be mounted a certain way and if your running the MSD box then only 2 wires should be connected to that coil. So with the MSD box, just with the key on, there won't be any current at the coil.

    No worries sir. It's always good to ask.

    What color wires are on the coil positive and negative? Gary
