I think that the early 930's are 8 pin.

I'm so confused. Guess I'll go out and unplug mine and count them.
But wait.....I'm running with an MSD6AL, and it doesn't have any pins at all! Man, I'm screwed and didn't even know it.

you're confused ?!
I've been carrying this thing around in my track box as a spare and just now realized that it might not be the correct one.

Bill,

If your 8 pin fails and you can't find another one, you can rewire your harness and use the 6 pin. Or go with MSD. If you are into originality then you are ***** out of luck.

thanks all
I looked in the repair manual at the wiring diagram and then under the lid to confirm, and it is an 8 pin CDI.
They are really different looking then the 6 or 3 pin - huge
duh
after 31 years of faithful service from the oem unit, I guess I should be looking at the MSD as an alternative.
