If you have an MSD billet distributor, the installation instructions will tell you that you will need one of their boxes to run. Now, can those be bypassed and used as a conventional dist. - probably, with some wire and common sense, but why? It sounds like you have some bucks in the engine, and BBC's are never cheap, so spend your $200+ and get a new MSD box or send them your failed unit for rebuild for a few bucks less.

It depends on what model distributor you have. If it has a module and pickup then yes it will work stand alone. If it only has a pickup then no it wont work. If you can supply model numbers it would be easier to help you.
