Dumped the HEI Dizzy
 
After getting stranded 4 times and going through 5 ignition modules since Memorial Day weekend, I finally pulled the HEI dizzy and installed an MSD Blaster two and an old style points distributor. Whole d.....ned summer wasted with no camping trips, no backroad driving and no shooting!

So much for the new style crap. At least now I can just stick in a new condenser or points and get home. What a waste of time and money!

I installed a High Energy Ignition Distributor (HEI Dizzy) on my 1988 YJ in the hopes of having faster starts, better ignition of the gas drawn into the carburetor, and higher output (combustion/rpm/torque/hp) Initially it worked really well. Then it started acting up, failing to start, failing while driving, etc. As I said, I did everything possible to stick with it before going to a high output coil (MSD Blaster II-45,000 volt output) and the old style points and condenser distributor. I went "old school" for the simplicity of it.

Hope that is clearer.
