What's going on everyone. I'm new to this site so forgive me if i posted in the wrong section.
I have an 86 mustang with an 88 5.0, edelbrock performer intake, holley 650dp, and msd 6al.
When i bought the car it just had an msd-6 with a torker intake and carter carb. I changed the intake and carb and still had my 6al off my firebird when i had it.
I put everything together and it ran great, then the next day started running like crap. Sounds like its missing on a few cylinders.
I checked the ohms on the accel coil and its not picking up anything so i swapped it out for an msd blaster 2 and still nothing.
Changed plugs, and threw some new wires on all the way around. Tested the msd box and everything is working fine. Carb is adjusted properly. This leads me to believe it has something to do with the old as$ distributor that's still in the engine. It's a magnetic pickup but was originally points.
I'm just looking for ideas, tests to run, or some pointers. this is my first ford, maybe theres something im missing. thanks for any help put forth
