Big Mistake
#1
Well up to now I've done everything my self regarding my engine. Now when it's time to fire up I got my son involved. He's a tech but not sure with Fords. Tring to fire the engine he hot wired the tach and burned the dist module, so lost spark. I have a Mallory Unilite Dist. My Questio...Is it worth use replacing the module at $90 or up grade to eliminate the resistor block with a more current unit.

Also could'nt get any fuel up from the tank with a new fuel pump. and my put the old one back on which did work.

Hey Alan what type are you looking for? the #MAL-6100M or #MAL-605. The 605 is more expensive than the 6100M. I had to replace mine and got it for $40 plus $12 shipping. Give Bob at Race-Mart a call Phone: Toll Free (888) 286-9797

Alan in my opinion you can't beat the Duraspark distributor. I'm running one with an old Motorsports MSD box

Jeff T.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.
