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