Goran, you're expertise here is very helpful.

If anyone doesn't understand
Sometimes, even programmable ignition must be paired with some sort of mechanical advance if uzing mechanical dizzy. Attempt to run pre-programmed advance on locked distributor can result in spark walking out of rotor tolerances. Rotor can only distribute spark if spark is in the ballpark of curved piece of metal doing the actual distribution. So sometimes, you have to use mechanicals just to align the rotor good enough to do the actual distribution.
Then they need to have a look at a distributor of a 3.2 carrera. Basically it has weights and either a spring or springs in but no electronics at all. Pretty clever.

Goran, how does one trigger the MSD units we were discussing? Do you have to fit a trigger wheel to the crank?
Am I right in thinking that with a MSII you have no choice but to fit a trigger wheel to the crank?
