If your using a mag pick-up in the dist. ,turn the ignition on and simply disconnect the mag pick up wire , take a paper clip and jump the two terminals on the mag pick up connection coming from the MSD . If you do this , then you should hear the coil fire and the box is working . If your trying to use the white wire to fire the system , simply ground it and you should hear it fire if the box is working .
