  1. Unresisted (Full 12V) voltage will make the tach inaccurate (read high) and shorten the life of the tach.
  2. I have a Holley on my 460. It is basically a Carter. On my Clevelands I ran a stock pump with an electric for when I was racing.
  3. I ordered, selected Guest rather than give more info to fakebook, selected PayPal and never saw a place to put in my THANKS20 discount code. Oh well, I'll try again next year.
  4. I THINK the differences are: P1 - Works with stock wiring, but can burn out if key is left on with engine off. P2 - Requires 12V feed but has protection against the 'key on' failure. P3 - Same as P2, added multiple spark and rev limiter. Having had to deal with the Pertronix devices with my tach movements I am not a fan of Pertronix Ignitors. Put one on a scope sometime and you will be amazed - voltage swings of 35+ volts at the coil! I switched over to Duraspark II years ago and love it. My second choice would be points.
  5. Welcome aboard, Juan! That is one BEAUTIFUL car! Love the argent accents.
  6. That's exactly the one I have in my '69. My Dad's '66 has a mechanical handle/cable setup.
  7. I don't recommend the billet micro screen type, but if you go that route make sure you have the necessary (probably metric) wrenches to open it on the road when that little screen clogs up.
  8. Over the years I have used Motorcraft, Holley and Edelbrock carbs, MSD, Pertronix, single and dual point ignitions. For street driving, all around performance and reliability I like Summit carbs and Duraspark ignitions.
  9. Wow, thanks guys. This is perfect - I have 6 vehicles, 2 motorcycles and a tractor but can never seem to find a flashlight (other than my cellphone) when I need one.
  10. Are you grounding the spark plug when attached to coil center post?
  11. I've been after one from Lake Motors in Salt Lake City for 20 years. I'm wondering if they even had them - it's cool that you have a picture of one. Will keep my eyes open for yours as well.
