MSD 6214 Programmable Midget CDI Ignition System
MSD 6214 Programmable Midget CDI Ignition System
x
            The programmable midget cd ignition is a complete electronic distributorless system consisting of a powerful capacitive discharge ignition control, a four tower high output coil pack and uses two non-magnetic pick-ups with a trigger wheel as a trigger source. This takes all of the mechanical variables out of the picture to produce exact ignition timing. 
  • Plot two timing curves ranging from 800-15,000 RPM in 0.1° increments
  • Program a start retart to ease cranking
  • A battery monitor circuit shows real time battery voltage and a low voltage time percentage
  • Switch between two timing curves as track conditions change during a race

The midget ignition is supplied with the cd ignition control, two non-magnetic pick-ups, on/off switch and software. Trigger magnet is sold separately.

Designed with sprint cars in mind, this MSD Pro Mag unit offers light weight and incredible power. The compact housing also sits an inch lower for improved clearance of the fuel injections plus features a band clamp mount for easier timing adjustments. 

The electronic points box is the brain of the Pro Mag. It controls the spark duration and the unique full-power firing sequence of the Mag. The energy from the generator is controlled with Field Effect Transistor (FET) technology which is far superior to mags still using points as a trigger source.

OXC Super Competition Vertex Magneto, Chevy V8, Fixed Advance
OXC Super Competition Vertex Magneto, Chevy V8, Fixed Advance
x
            The OXC super competition Vertex magneto, rugged and dependable like its  competition predecessor, has been developed to provide maximum voltage  output with a long duration spark; the spark needed to initiate a solid  flame front in the combustion chamber. It has been designed for engines  using superchargers, exotic fuels and high cylinder combustion  pressures. The distributor head is made of a superior dielectric material which  prevents cross-firing, resists tracking and insures full voltage  potential to the spark plugs. The modern external coil with space age core is solidly potted and can be mounted in any position. 
  • Compact And Lightweight
  • Completely Self-Contained
  • Quick And Easy Replacement
  • Applications Are Unlimited
  • Rugged And Dependable
  • Bronze distributor gear

    MSD's Non-Magnetic Pick-Ups are engineered for extreme applications. In fact, this Pick-Up was designed and tested on 300+ top fuel dragsters! To live up to MSD's demading expectations in these extreme applications, MSD designed and built the Pick-Up in-house. That way, they can control every aspcet of the assembly and quality. 

    Each Pick-Up is hand wound on a special bobbin and terminated to MSD's tinned conductor, teflon jacketed wiring. These wires are also routed through a strain relief for protection. This assembly is then installed into the precision housing and is potted with a fracture resistant epoxy compound. To ensure that the windings are entirely incased in epoxy, the Pick-Ups undergo a vacuum procedure to remove any air inside the housing. All of these procedures are necessary to product the strongest, most reliable non-magnetic Pick-Up avaiable. 

    The Non-Magnetic Pick-Ups are available in two housing sizes. The 3/4" model is used with MSD’s Flying Magnet Crank Trigger Kits. The 3/8" diameter Pick-Ups are used with MSD’s Sprint Car Crank Trigger systems as well as the professional racing kits from RCD and PSI.

    MSD's non-magnetic pick-ups are hand made to ensure the highest quality. You should always have a spare in your tool box.

    Moroso 62160 Spark Plug Indexer, 14MM
    x
                

    High-compression drag race engines require “indexing” of spark plugs to prevent contact between piston dome and ground wire of the spark plugs. Moroso’s indexer, designed for both flat and taper-seat 14mm spark plugs, enables selection of spark plugs that will not make such contact. Once a given plug is selected (placed in a cylinder head and found to have the correct ground wire position), it is placed in the Moroso Plug Indexer and the position of the ground electrode marked on the black anodized surface. Marking provides a reference for checking other plugs to be used in the same cylinder.

    • Designed for both flat and tapered seat 14 mm spark plugs
    • Black anodized for easy marking
    • Hex-head design allows it to be held in a vise
