I had accel coil and breakerless distributor in my 351c at first, which worked fine.My upgrade was MSD 6al box,Billet MSD distrib,8mm msd wires,and tach adapter.Using all MSD makes things so much user friendly, everything plugs into each other real simple.Only kept my Accel coil.No matter how hard I tried ,even with MSD tech support I couldnt get 6al box to work with Accel distributor in my setup.

Is the MSD system breaker-less or do you have to adjust your points on that one?

I have the Mallory Unilite with the Mallory Blaster coil but I don't think it is as good as they make it out to be.
Any thoughts?

If you are buying new? The Crane H-6 for 182 bucks in summit is the only way to fly!IMO. I have a MSD 6A with a Duraspark DIS. That works fine on my mostly stock motor! But my son has a 68 stang with a built 351w And his H-6 works better!! He is using a duraspark Dis. And it works very well! I'm using a Accel coil He is using a MSD coil Till he has the money for a Crane!

P.S. The MSD 6 models are old school analog.
The Crane is digital!!

Would that old tech also be the case with the Mallory System??
