So you are going to run 123 ignition driving the MSD? I am considering the exact same setup. I'd be interested to hear how that works for you.

@blabla914 that is the current set up. It runs smoother and with the carbs now at a baseline with good throttle shafts and the IDA conversion it should run really well

Cool thanks. I’m going to pull the trigger on that.

I just found your thread on the bird board.

White MSD to black 123
Blue 123 to ground
Red 123 to ignition hot
Yellow 123 not used

Is that how you ended up doing it.

I also see several other people running the MSD with the blaster coil with the 123 ignition.

@mb911 - performance oriented - Did you only send your carb bodies to be rebushed and converted? Is that why they are still in pieces?

@Gint yes.. Did the "poor mans" deal where he cleans all the passages, rebushes, and converts them to IDA with adjustable air correction jets.. This included truing up all surfaces, and replated everything..

Mine need to have the throttle shafts re-bushed. Other than that they are in good shape. The last time I looked...

After looking at the date of my original post it looks like. 5 year anniversary for my project as of this weekend. I am in the final stretch on this car.. Thinking spring wrap up.. Exciting for sure. Have to fix some oil leaks but really close.. I am sanding the front fenders and may have them in paint over the next few weeks.

Time goes by pretty fast with these projects. I'm guessing that an average lenght restoration. The car looks excellent!
