distributor&starter questions

Hello all!Well I have a few questions,first right now I have an accel distributor&I'm wondering can I put an msd cap on it?I just really don't like the look of the one that's on here now.Also is there an advantage to an ignition box? &finally I constantly have a draw draining my battery.I haven't really messed with this car since last winter but its not the battery or alt I disconnected the tach&my radio. Only thing I'm thinking is when I put the high torque starter in there I couldn't get one of the wires real snug could that cause the draw?

Hi Kid!
Cap- Yes.
ignition box- In some circumstances, yes. For a stock vehicle, no.
loose wire on the solenoid cause a drain, no. Knowing your unable to tighten the nuts on the solenoid, you can either buy a kit plug/socket deal, to connect & disconnect the wires. Or make one yourself out of something like a trailer light plug.
