Hi everyone, I've read the how to article on here for using a stock tach with the MSD setup and was wondering if anyone had any experience using the stock tach in a 240z with a 280zx matchbox distributor. Looking forward to hearing some results! I'm trying to stick with the stock gauges as best as possible for a period look. Chris
I picked up a 71 manual 240z. I can't get any spark from it at all. I have check the points gap which was .018. I have voltage to positive side of coil at both key on and start position. I have used a ohm meter to check that the plug on the distributor is grounded and it is when the point is closed. I have full battery voltage at the negative side of the coil as well as the wire from the coil to the cap. What would be the issue? A condenser of some sort?
I'm looking to gauge the interest in a custom plate to mount the later ZX distributor to the older [points] style base. I recently converted my distributor, but didn't have the luxury of acquiring the mount from the ZX donor; The mount being the aluminum collar that actually bolts to the front cover. Neither adjuster plate would work; the points plate did't fit the ZX distributor and the ZX plate didn't fit the points base. I ended up making up my own hybrid adjuster plate from some ~2mm plate I happened to have laying around. If there's any interest - I can't be the first one this has happened to - I can make a CAD file of the part available (I haven't developed yet because I've only made the one by hand). That way any CNC shop can cut/burn one out on the cheap, or print out a pattern to cut by hand. If there's interest, I'll take mine apart and draw it up.
