View Full Version : Price / Turnaround On 6al Servicing???

09-29-2003, 11:52 PM

I was having problems with my blown 91 Mustang cutting out at right around 3000 rpm. Not a hesitation, or stutter, the car would just lay over, tach would drop down to zero, then the car would catch itself. I bypassed the MSD6AL and just ran the stock ignition for a few days, and the car ran great, even at 3000 rpm.

I removed the 6AL and wanted to send it in for a "checkup" and see if there is indeed a problem with it.

How much for the service / rebuild???

How quick is the turnaround one you receive my MSD box???

Necessary shipping info???

Do I need an r/a number or anything???

Would I get a phone call when it's ready to ship back to me, and will you request payment at that time???

Sorry for all the questions. Any help would be most appreciated!!!

The service charge can range from $15 to $65, depending on the repairs done to the unit. The turnaround time is from 12 to 14 days in house time, although the faster you send it to us the faster we can get it back to you. Rush is around 8 to 10 days. Send it to the following address,
MSD Att: Repair
12120 Esther Lama, Suite 114
El Paso, TX. 79936
Write a brief description with the problem with the unit a good return address and a phone # in case we need to get in contact with you. If you would like to call you before shipping, please indicate in the note for us to call before shipping. We can either send it COD or we can call for credit card info. NO R/A number is required.

I had the same problem in my 70 T/A....

It would idle fine and worked perfect when driving normal, but as soon as I got on the gas, it would die, then suddenly catch itself....

Turned out to my a bad connection on the 6AL's power wire that was grounding against the chassis...

Might wanna check your wiring before sending your unit in...

Thanks for the post Rick. The suggestion to check the wiring is always a good step to take when you have a cutout problem like Jeff described. Sometimes just moving the wires around or jiggling them while the vehicle is running to see if the vehicle quits helps track the problem down.
