Hi, i have recently installed a msd distributor and 6a ignition box in my 1971 mustang that has a 302. We set the distributor correctly, the ignition box is wired correctly and it sounds in perfect sequence but the spark is hitting very slowly about 1 spark in a wire about every second. And when we disconnect the wire from the coil that goes to the distributor (the wire is still in the distributor) the spark is jumping from the positive to the negative and vice versa. I am running a petronix coil that i believe puts out around 40,000 volts. It seems that it is not getting enough power some how. What is wrong here this is very annoying. I need you guys to give me some possible reason for this i am willing to try anything. HELP ME PLEASE
