haha yeah, it was still on the engine stand in that picture.. wiring is pretty straight forward, the three wires going tot he alternator, two wires to the oil pressure/temp module thing (took a picture when i disconnected them, so they are connected properly..) one wire to oil pressure idiot light sensor, ignition switch wire to small red wire on MSD box, MSD small black wire to neg side of coil, MSD orange wire to pos side of coil, MSD thirck red wire to 12v, MSD thick black to ground..

They were rebuilt about a year and a half to two years ago, fully cleaned and cleared, they've ran for about 15 minutes since other than that been sitting on the passenger seat.. I set them up with the lean best idle process.. mixture screws lightly seated then backed out a full turn.. the idle screws don't do anything anymore because of the sync link linkage..

Feel free to stare and admire,
