My boat originally had and OMC 5.7 260 horse with a points distributor. I rebuilt the whole motor, got rid of my dist. thinking i wasnt ever gonna use it again. As the season came i was low on money and couldnt afford to buy a pro billit dist. I was told i could use a dist. with a magnetic pick up with the msd. i found a marine thunderbolt dist. hooked it up and couldnt get the motor started. i did the tests, found out that the msd box is fine, now what do i do? a new pick up is $65. is this gonna work? I also noticed that this distributor doesnt have any kind of advancment. Can this dist. work or do i need to go another avenue. any help or life experiances would be great.
