    The battery's load capacity cranks the engine, while the lightning coil runs the electronics and recharges the battery. An EFI fuel pump draws around 3 amps, so I really hope your MSD doesnt pull 1 amp per 1000 rpms. You should show 14.v on your gauge when underway.

    What problem are you having ?

    You probably need to call you-know-who. Check the wiring on the triggers, make sure they are'nt getting frayed and pulled loose.
