MSD Timing Controls


Price: $187.95
Item Number: 8680
Manufacturer: MSD
Manufacturer Part No: 8680
MSD Timing Controls are designed so engines with locked out timing or crank triggers can take advantage of an ignition curve. The weights and springs inside your existing distributor are removed and the mechanical advance is locked out so the timing is controlled entirely by the MSD Timing Control. By controlling the ignition electronically, the timing curves can be set faster, more accurately, and with more adjustablility than mechanical advances. The Timing Controls provide reliable operation throughout the RPM range.

MSD Adjustable Timing Control
The MSD Adjustable Timing Control puts you in control of your ignition timing - from the drivers's seat! A dash mounted control knob allows you to adjust the ignition timing to compensate for changes in altitude, low octane gas, or heavy loads. For cars driven every day but raced occasionally on the weekends, this control is perfect. Increased fuel mileage and performance are just some of the benefits as the ignition timing can be advanced or retarded to prevent engine detonation. The control knob mounts to the dash board for easy and accurate timing adjustments up to 15. The Control can be used on 4, 6 and 8-cylinder engines.

MSD Dual Time Delay Switch
Do you need to activate a timing retard for a split second to get your small tire drag car to hook up? Or what about activating a nitrous solenoid 0.8-seconds into a run? Our new Dual Time Delay Switch can accomplish both of these needs! The Dual Time Delay Switch allows you to provide a ground, or remove a ground to a circuit or control relay to two different circuits. The Switch can easily be programmed in 0.01-second increments using the touch screen and the LED read out.

MSD Fixed Curve Timing Computer
This Timing Computer has a pre-programmed timing curve that eliminates the need for a mechanical advance. When you start the car, the Timing Computer retards the timing 20 from the set mechanical timing. This provides easy starting and smooth idle. The timing begins to advance when the engine speed reaches 1,000 rpm and continues until 3,000 rpm when the total timing is reached. It also has a separate high speed retard circuit. This allows you to activate a retard amount via a switch to retard the timing during times of nitrous or high rpm. The retard amount is adjustable with plug-in modules and 2, 3 and 4 modules are supplied. Installs easily and can be used on 4, 6 or 8-cylinder engines. Must be used with an MSD Ignition Control.
