I need a new timing light, I used it on a Chevrolet and it quit working, really. I see a lot of things about "Multi-Spark compatible" https://mechanicguides.com/best-timing-light-for-msd-ignition/ . Is that a real thing? My old Actron CP 7519 seemed to work fine on all the cars with MSD ignitions. In any case, I haven't shopped for a timing light in a long time so I'd appreciate some input on what works well. Dial back would be nice, although I rarely use it. I see some have a tach. That would be nice if it is accurate. All inout appreciated.

I bought this from Harbor Freight and checked it against a known good Craftsman, works great with my original coil and point ignition.

I have a Snap On Digital roll back light and love it.  Works well with my MSD although a little jumpy at low RPMs.  You can get used ones on Ebay usually reasonably.
