I am adding the MSD 8918 rpm sensor and would like to verify the wiring.

I have the SparkFun Breakout and in the Wiki it has a note concerning boxes with either V+ or 5+terminals. (see 2nd attachment)

My box has the V+ terminals. (see 1st attachment)

I take it I need to run a wire from the SparkFun to an unused 5+ terminal (I am only using one load cell, so can use the 2nd load cell 5v)

Yes, do not use the V+ to power the SparkFun Breakout board. V+ is about 6.5 volt and you need 5V. Take from LoadCell2 for example.
