Talked to guy today that's pretty sharp on JD and he said they are worthless and that a MSD will not work with one.

Nuts &bolts, you and Jim are both correct, but the new MSD boxes wont work with your Lp distrubutor. Older ones work fine. I dont know why Msd changed them but they did. Gary

I know that a regular 2 cyl dist turns at crank speed, and sparks 2 times per crank revolution, same as a typical 4 cyl, and that the lp dist turns at half speed, and only sparks half as often.

Why does the MSD care? Doesn't it simply discharge when triggered?

I don't own a MSD and haven't seen a wireing diagram to know how they hook up - just wondered how they work and why the lp dist won't trigger them?
