My 73 vert the PO had installed a MSD 6A and MSD coil. My 73 Q Mach 1 still has the Ford distributor but had the Ford centrifugal advance added when the car was new. Still has the original coil.
The issue I have with MSD is stock air cleaner will not fit and have to use a very small aftermarket or the air cleaner sits on the wires and arcs out.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
I have a 1972 351 Cleveland 2V with 4V intake. My ignition system consists of a long ago rebuilt stock distributor, single diaphragm vacuum advance can w/ adjustable advance, standard Pertronix ,MSD 6A,MSD epoxy filled coil and MSD cap adapt (large cap Duraspark style).I made up my own set of wires with MSD 8.5 mm wire. I run NGK plugs gapped @ .45. My set up has worked well for years with no issues. My engine was originally equipped with a dual vacuum diaphragm distributor which of course I saved. I seem to save everything that comes off that car LOL.
I went with an Aussie product ICE Ignition 7 amp 1 step system which has programmable advance curves, rev limiter and vac advance
So far running at 20 deg initial and about 32 deg total but will be going on the dyno next week to get it spot on
Runs pretty sweet so far and happy with the product including service
I’ve gone with the Pertronix D134620 Flame-Thrower Black Cap Vacuum Advance Electronic Distributor with Ignitor Technology for Ford 351C and the PerTronix 40011 Flame-Thrower 40,000 Volt 1.5 ohm Coil. It took a little fiddling, but much easier install once I looked at the directions. Nice stock look distributor.

408C 4V CC heads. Rich Porter Technology distributor with Ford style trigger. Recurved, 18 initial, 38 total (best power verified at 38 on dyno). Pertronix coil, MSD digital 6AL amplifier. Rich Porter has since been bought by Spectra Premium. I don't know if the quality stayed the same. Chuck
One that works ...  Haha
