Any lite will work. I use a craftsmen lite. My dad got the flaming river one wire timing lite. Works great just add batterys hook it up to the number wire. And your ready to go.

After a MSD tech told me my Snap on timing lite would not be accurate with my 6al box, I went out and bought the light he reccomended.

THAT was a waste of money. It was just as inaccurate (accurate) as my Snap on.

My experience has been the same as Scoops.

I have yet to see any shops use anything other than Snap on lights on MSD stuff.

My experience has been if you get a nice timing light it will get either damaged or stolen within minutes. If you get a crappy POS one it will be with you forever.

Thats so true!
Tape messures too! I have two cheapo models that I can bury in the field. And some how they keep showing up in my tool box. Get a nice one and you'll either never see it again,or when you go to use it's broken.
