The Best Way to Trigger Your Ignition
Stable ignition timing is a necessity in performance engines, and, in most cases, a distributor will do just fine. For big-time horsepower with extreme cylinder pressures, the timing is critical to both the performance and the life of the engine, so MSD uses a non-magnetic pickup which gets triggered by powerful magnets embedded in the trigger wheel. This ''flying magnet'' design cannot be false-triggered since the only way to trigger the ignition is when a magnet passes the pickup. The sensor brackets feature a long adjustment slot providing a range of accurate timing adjustments. Plus, many of the brackets are compatible with either side of the balancer for easy installation. The timing wheel is machined out of 6061-T6 aluminum and anodized MSD Red. Most kits include mounting brackets, trigger wheel, non-magnetic pickup, centering ring, mounting hardware, and spacers for different accessories and pulley systems. Please note: all MSD Flying Magnet Crank Trigger Kits must be used with an MSD Ignition Control and a locked-out distributor.
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
