    A WORD OF ADVICE IF YOUR REPLACING YOUR STOCK FORD DIST. WITH THE MSD 8455. CHANGE THE PICK-UP COIL TO A MOTORCRAFT PART. I JUST SPENT MONTHS AND MANY DOLLARS CHASING AN ELECTRONIC GREMLIN THAT HAD INVADED MY CAR AFTER INSTALLING THE ABOVE MENTIONED DISTRIBUTOR. HTE ELECTRONIC MISMATCH WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO TROUBLE SHOOT. AFTER REPLACING THE MSD WITH A STOCK UNIT I PURCHASED ON E-BAY THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED. AFTER THAT FIX I RAN ACROSS A GUY WITH A 94 GT ON MAXIMUM MUSTANG THAT HAD AN IDENTICAL PROBLEM ALL THE WAY DOWN TO A 212 TROUBLE CODE. HIS FIX ALSO AFTER MONTHS OF GRIEF WAS TO REPLACE THE PICK UP COIL WITH ONE FROM AUTOZONE. I OPTED FOR A MOTORCRAFT PART. THE RESULTS ARE AMAZING. I SPOKE TO MSD YESTERDAY AND THEY CLAIM THEIR PART IS A FORD PART. DUE YOURSELVES A FAVOR AND JUST CHANGE THAT PART PRIOR TO INSTALL.
