    And again, these weights are mounted "backwards" from the MSD unit I have. just like all the Chevy HEI units I have looked at, down to my friends all original 79 Blazer. spinning clockwise I can see how these weights would swing out easier, its a more natural movement than my MSD unit I have pictured

    Inertia is the same in either direction. Don't worry about it.
